As part of the new Smash Cakes for my sisters 1 year old photography session we’ve been playing around with buttercream itty bitty cakes! These are 6 inch cakes, the perfect size for tiny hands.
I am in LOVE with this vertical ruffled cake! I still love the more heavily ruffled cake too, but this one is really VERY elegant in it’s own way!
If you want to see the smash session my sister, Chelsea Peterson Photography, has a post on it!
I used my regular buttercream recipe with shortening to hold the ruffles, but my sister said it was a real greasy mess, and so I’ll try butter next time hoping it’s easier to clean up, yet still hold the ruffles well!
Kay I’m TOTALLY in love with this cake, and the color, and that’s pretty much all there is to it! I can’t WAIT for Baby Boy’s cake smash session in just over 5 months left to decide what to do!
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?
