This cake was a bit of a last minute request. All I had to go on was that it was for a girl and they had a preference for buttercream over fondant covered, everything else was left up to me including the flavor.
I don’t always like free reign as I worry my vision will not match that of the person getting the cake. I went with vanilla bean cake so that I could do ombre for the cake layers (little surprise inside).
I kept the design simple and tried a new (to me) ruffle technique that I’ve been wanting to try. I had planned to do blossom ruffles but they were not turning out like I hoped, need more practice I guess, & so switched to making them from circles instead.
Thankfully they loved what I came up with :-)
