This beautifully ruffled cake was put together for my mother’s 60th birthday. It was my first time making fondant ruffles, and I have to tell you, it took quite a few tries for me to get the hang of it.
The only inedible part of this cake were the borders. I have a funny story about the border (except maybe only my science/math oriented readers will laugh). When I went to buy the border, I took the roll to the worker to cut and I told her I needed enough to wrap around a 12″ cake. She takes out the measuring tape, measures up to 12″ and loops it into a circle. It was a very tiny circle. So I tell her “Let me re-phrase, I meant a 12″ DIAMETER, so we need the circumference.” This is where school came to play because I asked for her calculator, punched in 3.14*12 (pi x diameter for the circumference) and got the correct length to be cut! Lesson? Math comes in handy 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this cake!! It’s perfect for weddings, or big birthdays!
