Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: Swiss meringue buttercream covering four layer chocolate cake. First time making SMBC and piping ruffles.

The ruffles are amazing! What size tip did you use? Can you please explain how you did it? I'd love to try it sometime. :)

Thank you for your kind comments. I used a Wilton 125, but you can use any size petal tip depending on the ruffle size you want. I think the original was Martha Stewart's idea and Sweetapolita had a great post on it (her's is beautiful!). You can also google ruffle cakes to find youtube tutorials. A good suggestion is to lightly mark the crumbcoat with a ruler or scraper so that the rows are straight and evenly spaced. Good luck :).
