Q&A with tanya_latif@shaw.ca

sewingforme asked:
wow are the ruffles buttercream too? Is that from the flat tip?
tanya_latif@shaw.ca answered:
The ruffles around the cake are buttercream. I piped them using a large rose petal tip. The ruffle flower on top was made using fondant.
driek asked:
Beautiful cake. Could you tell me your method for the ombre of purple & the color of purple you used? Thank you
tanya_latif@shaw.ca answered:
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??
tanya_latif@shaw.ca answered:
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!
