I’ve been ogling fondant ruffle cakes for months and months. When the opportunity arrised I took it and made my first fondant ruffle cake. I kind of knew how to make it but I had few blanks to fill it so I watched a really beautiful video fondant ruffle tutorial on you tube and I got to work. Ruffles took time to make but it wasn’t as difficult as it looked. You can do too!
You can find detailed information about the cakes I used and what materials I used below. Cake was a hit at the shower, and I was super happy everyone enjoyed it.
Sugar Sand : brown sugar mixed with some granulated sugar and added disco dust for sparkle
Leaf and small Star Piping Tip
To make the textured finish on the buttercream I use a piece of plastic wrap. I chilled the frosted cake, once the cake was chilled and buttercream on the outside was firm I used a piece of plastic wrap. Using 2 shades of ivory/light brown swiss buttercream I applied soft icing onto the chilled cake with dabbing motion using plastic wrap creating the textured finish.
Beach sand is made with brown sugar, granulated sugar and little bit of
rainbow disco dust. I like the beach sand to be a lighter in color. I added some
granulated sugar to brown sugar. You can control how light you want the
sand by adding more or less granulated sugar. Disco dust is added for
little sparkle. I used the same technique for the beach sand in my
other cake – Engagement Cake and Beach Cake with Gumpaste Adirondack Chair
To make the palm tree I used a gumpaste and royal icing as glue. Trunk, leaves were make separetely, then left to dry and once the whole piece was assembled I airbrushed the leaves with leaf green and tree trunk was airbrushed with brown.
To make the ruffles on the bottom tier, I used 1:1, gumpaste : fondant ratio. I followed a ruffle fondant tutorial on you tube. To adhere each ruffle onto the fondant covered cake I use a vodka mist.
Little hearts were made from fondant, and I use a mini cutter from the clay set I bought at Michaels. I attached hearts onto the top tier with a little bit of royal icing.
Usually I use a ribbon around the base of the cake board, this time I used a washi wedding tape.(Purchased at Michaels). I had to use a glue gun to adhere it firmly onto the surface.
Board with the message ” here come the BRIDE” was made from gumpaste. I made if from white plain white gumpaste and then I airbrushed it with brown.
Then I cut a little piece from a frosting sheet and using a painter’s brush and brown food coloring and little bit of vodka I wrote the message on the frosting sheet. Then I adhered it onto the board with royal icing.
