Had the pleasure of making a cake for my friend's daughter's first birthday party. It was a ballerina themed party; so, this pink buttercream ruffle cake fit right in. The cake was kept fairly simple given I also made 2 dozen cupcakes, carrot and white cake with chocolate chips, as well as the smash cake for the birthday girl.
I am becoming quite a fan of this design; given this is my second attempt at a buttercream ruffle cake now. As I mentioned before, it helps a lot to score vertical lines around the cake to keep your columns of ruffles uniformed.
