Our contributor, Tessa Huff of Style Sweet CA, is sharing a fabulous new design with us today…
Ruffles on cakes is a trend that has been completely loved and embraced over the past couple years. From small, delicate frills to larger waves, ruffles have been popping up on wedding, birthday, and baby shower cakes alike.
For this design, I wanted to use the ruffle but not in the typical horizontal fashion. I started to play around with some ideas, and discovered that vertical ruffles are just as stunning. Highlights of gold accent the delicate details, and the plain yet chic piping on the other tiers do not draw too much attention away from the main focus.
To top it all off, this wedding cake was accessorized with a large ruffle heart topper. It was surprising simple and a natural transition to bring the ruffle element to the heart-shaped symbol of love.
