The 11th Cake of Christmas

Our holiday cake inspiration, The 12 Cakes of Christmas, is quickly coming to a conclusion.  We’ve showcased a wide variety of holiday cakes, varying in style and created by talented cake artists across the globe.  Some cakes were from well-established bakeries, some from today’s hottest cake designers and some from fresh talent breaking onto the cake scene.  And to make it even more interesting, today’s cake is from a talented lady best known for her cookies and sweets on a stick.  But she can also make one impressive Ruffle Tree Cake!

You may have seen the green version of this cake floating around Pinterest earlier in the month…. I know I did!  It’s was absolutely lovely and caught the eye of many avid pinners!  Today, I’m thrilled to share the grown up, elegant version created in shades of cream and gold.  Filled with latte cake and white chocolate ganache, today’s cake from Linda Vandermeer of Bubble and Sweet is incredible!  Layers of frills topped with a single gold star, this Ruffle Christmas Tree Cake is the 11th Cake of Christmas!

Linda shared a few thoughts about the inspiration for her design:

“I love the look of ruffle cakes and for my daughter’s birthday party I had made a 3 tier ruffle cake and had so many requests on how to make it I felt I needed to do some type of tutorial for my blog.  By the time I got around to doing up the tutorial I was already in Christmas mode and I thought my kids would enjoy the fun shape of a 3D Christmas tree.  I had seen quite a few contemporary crafty (non edible) trees around made of ribbon and material and decided to make the cake along that theme.”

Isn’t it just dreamy?  I love the soft romantic ruffles with the small pop of gold.  It may only have one gold star at the top, but I think it deserves 5 stars!  Don’t you?

A huge thank you to Linda at Bubble and Sweet for sharing her elegant Ruffle Christmas Tree Cake with us!  You’ll be very happy to know that Linda has written up a tutorial on how to create a ruffle tree of your very own!  You can find it on her blog, HERE.  See you back here tomorrow for The 12th Cake of Christmas!  Ho, Ho, Ho!
