I have been loving the new buttercream trend, and smash cakes are the perfect medium for them! When I saw this cake on pinterest I knew I HAD to try it! Shells are a classic boarder, a bit outdated, but this is the perfect update for the shell!
Because this was part of a twin smash cake session both cakes had to be somewhat similar, and the other cake (for the boy) was a crescent cake, so rows and columns. So we wanted the girl’s cake to be ruffle-y but also have the rows and columns.
When I do this frosting again I’ll alternate where the shells are in each row, more like the inspiration cake. I think I’ll like it even better that way, although I usually like order and even-ness. I can’t WAIT to see how the session went!
And here is the sweet birthday girl! I kinda love seeing my cakes smashed, thinking I need an adult version…
This was part of a Twin Smash cake, so head over and check out the Crescent Buttercream smash Cake I made for her brother!
If you want to learn how I frost all these buttercream cakes I’m now teaching two online classes with more on the way! Anything you really want to learn?
