Evolution of a Wedding Cake

I thought it would be fun to record a wedding cake construction from beginning to end.

I set it fast forward for fun and so I look a bit like a cake ninja ;)

More petal tip fun!

I've been experimenting with different tips and I've had fun piping buttercream onto cakes instead of just spreading the icing on.

Here's a cake done completely with a petal tip:

The top was ruffled in a circular pattern from outside to in.

The side where piped with the "fat" side of the tip against the cake and the thin side angled slightly outward.

Clear as mud? ;)

Happy caking!

Vertical Ruffle Cake

My Sweet and Saucy made a ruffle cake, and my world has never been the same again!

I also like to use one with a slight ripple to it

Check out the "how to" video Sweet and Saucy was generous enough to make!
