VALENTINO Inspired Black & White Ruffles
Did this small cake (6″ × 6″ and 5″ × 3″) for a special personal occasion. I saw a dress by Valentino on-line and instantly wanted to represent it in cake and wanted to do it originally with a bright pink accent flower. Then I thought it might look nice in just black & white so did a white version of the flower. After, I thought maybe both flowers? Can’t seem to make up my mind so I’ve included all versions here.
My first time with ruffles of any kind and I must say, doing a double layer ruffle was perhaps not a great first ruffle to try! The fondant was drying out faster than I could get the double done and it didn’t ruffle quite the way I wanted.
On a funny note, I saw an ad for ShopBop (?) on CakesDecor after I made it, of the exact dress! Haven’t seen it again since but thought it was ironic!
