SOOOOO …. when I did Kinsley’s birthday cake with ruffles … I really just wanted to practice them so I’d be confident to do them on Kristin’s cake. Kristin wanted butter cream icing, so I did the same ruffle style that I did on Kinsley’s cake. Butter cream icing is sooo yummy, but there aren’t near as many decorative options as you have with fondant. Krisitin’s cake was sweet and simple.
