Ruffles & Lace

I’ve always been a fan of simple, sophisticated and modern.  Whether we’re talking about clothing, furniture, or cake!  That is my personal style and at one point in my life I would have cringed at the idea of lace and ruffles.  Over the years, my taste has evolved and I now find myself drawn to designs that include a subtle touch of something soft and romantic.  But when it comes to cake, it still needs to be crisp and clean.  I think that is why I fell in love with today’s cake.  This amazing Ruffles & Lace Cake by Erica O’Brien is the perfect combination of all these things.

She can take ruffles and execute them flawlessly, creating a soft feminine cake that is somehow still modern and crisp. Place it on a delicate vintage pedestal and you have… perfection!

Oh my ruffles!!!  I’m almost at a loss for words.  Very simply, this is just STUNNING!

I absolutely adore this cake!  The silvery ribbons provide a nice contrast to the soft sage ruffles.  And the lace backdrop adds an extra touch of dreamy to the whole display.
