Ballerina cake

Daily Top 3 - Jul 23, 2014

My daughter has been taking dance lessons since she was 3 years old. Last year she was evaluated and accepted into the ballet “points” program. So when Peggy Does Cake came out with her ballet slipper tutorial, I purchased it immediately as I knew I wanted to make those dainty shoes for my daughter. I used the Moroccan Lattice from Marvelous Molds to make the top tier and loved the effect it gave. For the bottom tier, I experimented with a lot of ruffle options and finally settled on a technique using a 6-petal blossom cutter to give a tutu-inspired look. As usual, because it’s summer, my free time is borrowed from sleep. So although I would have liked to add a few more finishing touches, when the clock read 4:30am I decided I had to call it a night! But my daughter loved it nonetheless and I was happy to be able to make this for her. Hope you like it too xx
