You know it’s going to be good when the description starts with bright, white and pristine. Oh for the love of monochromatic beauty! Today’s cake is an elegant design that’s all about the white-on-white texture. Delicate ruffles flow up, down and all around creating swirls of dreamy detail. While clusters of petite pompoms add another layer of wow-inducing character. It’s refined, elegant and just down right stunning. Let’s swoon, shall we? It’s an incredible White on White Ruffles Cake by Maria Nicoletti of RooneyGirl BakeShop.
Maria of RooneyGirl BakeShop gives us the scoop on her design:
“Two popular fondant techniques have become my obsession and I would apply them to every cake I make if I could. Recently, the perfect opportunity presented itself and I was overjoyed to put these techniques to use. This small wedding cake captures these delicate methods.”
Maria of RooneyGirl BakeShop shares her techniques:
“For the bottom tier, I took inspiration from a Sharon Wee Ruffle Rose tutorial. I applied countless strips of paper thin textured fondant to a white fondant cake. The strips are applied in a circular pattern to form the roses and in “V” shapes to form the ruffles in between. For the top tier, I’ve seen and admired numerous artists, including Erica O’Brien, applying a ruffly pompom effect and I wanted to try it. I cut out small round scalloped edge circles and folded them in quarters, leaving the ends open. I applied them in a very tight formation to the top tier using a little dab of water as needed. I finished the cake with a simple satin ribbon.”
Seriously. Undeniably. Gorgeous! The ruffled rosettes on the bottom tier are crazy beautiful. I love how they gracefully flow from one delicate swirl to the next. If you’ve ever thought an all white cake is boring, this little gem proves otherwise. It brings a touch of charm to any wedding or bridal shower.
A special thank you to Maria Nicoletti of RooneyGirl BakeShop for sharing her White on White Ruffles cake with us today. It is simply divine!
