Grey Ombre Ruffles

Today’s feature is pretty spectacular.  Yeah, spectacular is truly the only word that can describe this cake.  Or maybe phenomenal is more appropriate?  All I know is that I was in love from the moment I first spotted it on Instagram.  (Yeah, I finally took the plunge.  I’m on Instagram now!  Come join me here.)  So needless to say, I was completely elated when these images landed in my inbox.  Because I have a feeling that you’re going to love it too!  Shades of grey fade to white, creating a soft, neutral ombre.  While softly curved ruffles wrap around each tier, ever so gracefully, creating a delicate rose-like appearance.  With just a little flare on each individual frill.  It comes to us from Charlotte Tyson of Sugar Ruffles, and I’ll say it again…. it’s simply spectacular.  Let the swooning begin!

Charlotte of Sugar Ruffles gives us the scoop on her design:

“This wedding cake was created for a couple getting married in The Lake District who wanted their wedding cake to resemble Great Gable mountain.  As we discussed ideas for the cake, we developed a conceptual design representing a snow topped mountain, while also incorporating their main wedding color grey.”
