To celebrate this momentous mile stone and to thank her for being the best mom and grandma ever, I wanted to surprise her with a special cake that was as beautiful as she is! So I thought what a perfect time to create the ruffle cake I have been dying to make.
It wasn't that long ago that I had seen Sweetapolita (a fantastic baker, you should check out her website) create a beautiful cake that looked like yards and yards of ruffles, and instantly I knew that I had to learn how to make that cake. Though there wasn't a tutorial, it seemed relatively easy and she did mention that she used the Wilton #123 large flower petal tip. Lucky for me I happened to have it! With that little bit of knowledge, I went for it....and I must say, it was actually pretty easy and the cake is very forgiving, so you don't have to be a skilled cake decorator to do this yourself.
Needless to say, my mom loved it and had a very happy birthday!
Happy 60th Birthday to my beautiful and amazing mama, role model, teacher, cheerleader, inspiration, and friend. Without you I wouldn't be the person I am today. Love you!
