This weekend we celebrating with our good friends as their little one turned 1 year old! Payton is such an adorable little girl and I can't wait to share more pictures from her party. Amy threw an adorable Shabby Chic styled party. I made the cake and cupcakes for the party, and was so excited to make an extra girlie cake! This cake is pretty popular right now, I have seen lots of pictures of it on pinterest and Martha Stewart has a recipe here for how to make one. There is even a great video you can watch that shows you how to make these adorable little ruffles...sometimes it is much easier to learn something like this by watching instead of reading. You can view the video here on You Tube by My Sweet and Saucy.
I made this one with 2 6" inch cakes and colored my butter cream frosting a pale pink color. Then I used a petal tip, #103 to create the ruffles. You start at the base of the cake with the thinner edge of the petal tip facing you. Then moving the tip back and forth you move up the cake. Creating columns of ruffles until you have gone all the way around the cake. Once you have covered the sides of the cake you can cover the top. Start on the edge and circle around, again with the thin edge of the petal tip facing you. This is easier to do it you have the cake on a turn table. You do this until you reach the center and the whole cake is covered in cute little ruffles! It's really simple and easy to do!
I then made a mini bunting banner for on top using the following:
- Pink polka dot scrapbook paper
- White letter stickers
- Blue ric-rak
- Pink striped paper straws
- Elmer's glue
