I love the elegance this cake brings to a dessert table.
The ruffle, especially in pastel shades of colour, gives this cake a very lady-like look. Though it seems somehow complicated (in my opinion), it's not that difficult to make. All you need is a piping bag and a great willing to do the labour work. Also, bear in mind that the decoration calls for more buttercream. In my case, it took approximately 3 times more than usual.
As it was my first ruffle cake, the piping wasn't so neat especially at the ending part on top of the cake. So I just cover it with a buttercream rose ;) But it helps make the whole cake look a bit sweeter, doesn't it? Hehehehehe.
An idea for your upcoming Valentine's?
