Material Buttercream on

What are you most proud of? The simplicity but beauty of the cake on

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Ensure your buttercream is chilled on

Love it! So feminine.

Beautiful cake. Could you tell me your method for the ombre of purple & the color of purple you used? Thank you

I used a large rose tip piping an up and down motion to create the ruffles. I darkened the buttercream every third ruffle layer

THIS IS GORGEOUS!!!! Is there instructions for the flower??

10/02/2012 Flag

Thanks! The flower is made up of gumpaste circle in 3 sizes layered. I used a ball tool to ruffle the edges of each circle and then layed them one on top of the other using gumpaste glue to attach them. I placed pieces of papertowel between the layers to create the separation. The jewel in the center was made using a ball of gumpaste covered in piping gel and then dipped into Disco Dust. As a final touch I attached the pearls around the ball with a little piping gel. Hope this Helps!
