I cannot believe it’s been more than a week since I shared a new cake. WOW – I’ve got some work to do!
Okay, I know I say this alot, but I was absolutely in love with this cake. I love the bright, bold colors and I am crazy about the crazy, messy ruffles.
When a family friend asked me to make a cake for her adult daughter’s birthday, she let me have carte blanche with the design.
I have wanted to try to do a ruffles cake for a long time (yes, this is my first one!), and after the Peacock cupcakes last week, I was in love with those vibrant bright colors.
SO….. the idea was born to combine the bright colors and the ruffles… and the final cake was dazzling (if I might say so myself).
Update: Thanks to a question in the comments by Michelle… here are a few more details. I used my favorite Americolor gel colors. Specifically, I used Electric Green, a mix of Violet and Electric Pink, and a mixture of Electric Blue and Sky Blue (and maybe a drop of Teal?).
Do you like the look of the ruffles on a cake? Do you have any questions about this cake? Please leave them in the comments!
