Instructions
Ropes may be used in various ways on cakes. The most popular way is to use them as an elegant, fabric-like border. You can also use brown fondant and mold a rope border for western theme parties, or for a bride and groom's cake "tying the knot!"

1. Open rope-maker and lightly spray inside with a cooking spray.
2. On a lightly sprayed flat surface or a silicone mat, roll fondant into a 6" snake with the diameter a little larger than the hole at the end of the rope-maker.
3. Open the rope-maker and center it, opening down, over the snake. Press the rope-maker onto the snake of the fondant. Close the filled rope-maker but do not squeeze it completely together.
4. Open the rope-maker slightly to be sure the rope-maker is filled. If some of the rope appears flat, press in more fondant and re-close the rope-maker.
5. Open rope-maker and allow rope to fall out.
6. Cut ends of the newly formed rope at an angle, following the rope pattern.
7. If desired, dust with dusting powders.
8. Attach to cake with piping gel. Continue making the ropes, joining the angled cut ends of the ropes so the seam cannot be seen.< /p>
