Purple Buttercream Cake

Project Description

Share a little about the materials, processes, and techniques used to create this cake Swiss Meringue Buttercream, Chocolate Cake, Gum Paste What are you most proud of? It's hard to find something that I was proud of. The icing got too soft and I should have put it in the refrigerator for a while. I started at the top, working down and had trouble with the last rows. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I did use candy mold coloring, and it is a brilliant color. Keep the butter cream cold and be sure to gauge the amount of icing for each color. I had a hard time with the bottom rows because of the platter the cake was on and the icing starting softening.

WOW! What a great cake,my favorit color ever. Good luck on the wedding cake. One question, how long did it take you to make the ruffles?
Redhead1946 answered:
I had all the colors already in pastry bags, so probably 20-25 mins.
