Let's talk ruffles!

When I think about ruffles, there are several images that come instantly to my mind... Some of them are...

But it definitely opened my eyes to a new world of possibilities when I was searching Martha Stewart's website, and came across this:

Oh my... I fell in love all over again with the cake world... this baby is just as gorgeous as it can be, not only girlie and cute, but show stopping beautiful.  I knew in the very moment I saw this picture, that I HAD to make it, and that's when this post begins... ENJOY!

So, I started working on my pretty ruffles cake.  It was such a great fun to think of which pastel shade I would go for to decorate my cake, think about this poor woman that has two boys, who would only ask her to make superheroe cookies, star wars inspired cakes, and so on... yep.... ME!  So, it is a real treat to be working on a 100% girlie cake, with ruffles all over... cute, cute, cute... I am loving every second of it!

If you would like to give it a go {and I totally encourage you to!}, there is a great tutorial on you tube posted by Melody from Sweet & Saucy

I can't stop staring at it...

Let's dedicate a moment to ruffles... aren't they adorable???

This was a moist vanilla cake, covered with fluffy swiss meringue buttercream... you can't go wrong!

This is why I am passionate about cakes, the possibilities are endless, and inspiration comes from everywhere... hope you were inspired today!

Have a sweet and ruffly weekend!

The good thing of having a baker like you as a friend is that I am always amazed by your new creations, the bad thing is that my diet always begins tomorrow.

Thanks for your sweet art surprises!
