you know what i like? i like to make things pretty. what’s more prettier than pink? (according to John Hughes – not much!) and what’s more prettier than ruffles?
so, it was a no brainer to make a ruffle cake, inspired by domestic princess herself, Martha Stewart, for a cake order for a 50th birthday party. it was for a group of ladies going out on the town! this was my first time trying out the ruffle border. I used a large ruffle icing tip and after coating the cake with buttercream, i zig-zagged my way up the edge of the cake using the ruffle tip. The cake flavor was strawberry and had a deeper shade of pink than the vanilla buttercream – which i tinted just slightly to make it very pale and natural looking.
below is the evolution of the ruffle cake. it was a fun one to make and it turned out really pretty – just like molly ringwald.
