Sweet Ruffles {Bridal Shower}

This showstopping cake was made for a sweet bride-to-be this past May (she actually just got married a few weeks ago, so the "to-be" part is actually no longer needed! :)  Jane and I went to high school together and were on two swim teams together, so I was so excited when she reached out to me so many years later to make her bridal shower cake!

She knew she wanted something girly, feminine and pink for the cake for this special event and we worked together to find a design that she loved. We found a GORGEOUS ruffle cake made by Maisie Fantaisie in the UK and Jane decided she wanted that exact cake in the colors of her choice.

The cake was vanilla with raspberry fruit filling and vanilla buttercream. The design was so simple and elegant looking, but BOY are looks deceiving!! The ruffles took 5 hours to apply to the cake, but because I was so excited to make a replica of such a gorgeous cake, the energy never dwindled!

Here's a shot taken from the top of the surface left un-ruffled! :)

Delivering the cake was so nerve-wracking because it was SUPER heavy, but once it was set in place and I could breathe a sign of relief, it was great to catch up with my high school friend and see the "before' of the gorgeous shower about to take place at her mom's house. Everything was set up so beautifully and every detail thought of - so amazing!

Wishing all the happiness in the world to the happy couple!!
