Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this cake: This was a cake for a Nurse retiring after 35 years service to her community. There are 2 flavours in the cake, one, the top tier is 4 layers of Sweet Lemon cake with buttercream frosting between each layer. The bottom tier is also 4 layers with buttercream frosting between each layer and is Fudge Marble cake. The top tier is covered with Vanilla Fondant and decorated with a Silver Satin Ribbon & a Blingy Buckle. The bottom tier is covered with Silver Buttercream in a Ruffle Design then sprayed with Silver Edible Pearl Spary.

What are you most proud of? The whole cake turned out with what both the client & I had in mind. We wanted to honour this fabulous lady with a fabulous cake.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The Ruffles were easier than I thougth they would be to apply. A good crumb coat is the key. Wilton Tip 125 was the tip I used, but any size similar would do. Work bottom to top. Hold the wider end of the tip at the cake side and hold the bag straight up & down, then sweep side to side as wide as you want your ruffle. Finish off with about an inch of a tail at the top to finish the ruffle, then you are able to cover the top with more buttercream in a petal pattern or with fondant.

Not at all! The ruffles were very easy with Wilton Tip # 125 (Leaf tip) and an easy back & forth motion starting from botton to top as wide as you want it to be!
