SMBC Pink Ruffle Strawberry Baptism Cake
Recommended Tutorial for Buttercream Ruffle Cake of Venna's Art of Cakes
The Story behind this Cake
This SMBC cake was made for the christening of my friend's baby.
It's a vanilla sponge cake filled and frosted with strawberry swiss meringue buttercream. I followed Veena's Art of Cakes tutorial for the buttercream ruffle technique and Gulnaz Mitchel tutorial for the David Austin Rose.
I have used Wilton 104 tip for the ruffles and the rose is made of 50/50 gumpaste and fondant to allow it dry faster and I could roll it very thin and get more realistic look.
We had a low budget, and this prompted us to use our imagination to achieve an attractive result. I prepared the table. I made 3 cakes and cupcakes. I like girly, simple cakes. I love flowers, lace, ruffles. As in the table had 3 cakes I didn't want to see a confusing table with too many items. I opted for 3 simple and delicate cakes. And particularly I made this cake SMBC decorated because not everyone likes fondant.
