Making all the smash cakes this last year have been SO much fun! This one is no exception. It’s tighter ruffles than the previous cakes, with a slight ombre effect. I love that the ombre is stronger at the bottom rather than perfectly even up the sides.
I made this cake for Lyndsey Fagerlund (and she took all the pictures, I just made the cake) for her own baby’s first birthday! And the really fun part? Lyndsey was on Good Things Utah talking about capturing children’s birthday parties, and this cake was featured! You can see the video here.
I made 5 shades of pinks, from baby pink to white. I did 1 row of the darkest pink on the bottom, them 3 rows of each color moving up the side, covering the top in the lightest shade
I love how it turned out! I definitely see more of these sweet delicate cakes in the future! I love these tight ruffles! It took a bit longer t make and more frosting than some of the ruffles, but I’m totally in love with it!
And here is the sweet birthday girl!!! Seriously, how totally adorable is she? She looks much happier than Baby Boy was to break into that cake! Those bright blue eyes, those sweet teeth and blonde curls? Gorgeous. And I want that high chair!
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?
