Occasionally Crafty: Ruffle Cake

April 13, 2012

Ruffle Cake

My daughter's birthday was yesterday!  I can't believe she's 7- time surely does fly in the overall scheme of things.

She loves everything pink and girly, so I decided to make her a pink ruffle cake.  I've never done anything like this before.  I turned to this video for guidance, and here's how it turned out:


I love it!  It's perfect for her.  While my technique needs a little work to be a little more precise, I love the overall effect of the ruffles.  Although, I should've gone up just a little bit higher and it really bothers me when I look at it!


I also made this little paper dress cake topper, inspired by this one at Composing Hallelujahs.  I just made it a little shorter so it looks like a tutu.  Love it!




I'm sharing this here:  come along with me!

  2. Great work. I love how it turned out. I do cakes as a hobby, but I work mostly with fondant. Doing so much frosting would intimidate me.

  7. What size or type of cake pan did you use? Also, did you have the tip the video suggested? If so, where did you find it, or what is it called? Wondering if I could cut a ziploc bag to work. Thanks! Adorable!
