Q&A with EllingtonSweets

Southerntouch asked:
how did you make the buttercream icing look like ruffles?
EllingtonSweets answered:
First I crumb coated each cake. Then I added another layer of frosting. Once the cakes were covered with the second layer of frosting, I took the tip of a knife and drug it through the icing starting at the bottom and working my way up to the top. It's somewhat like you are drawing in the sand...if that helps.
Laurenaangel asked:
Simply elegant...did you use poundcake or sponge?
EllingtonSweets answered:
poundcake...sorry for the delayed reply
