The client brought in a picture from The Pastry Studio, done all in fondant. She wanted something similar, but in buttercream of course! Since I seem to be the Queen of Buttercream, I jumped at the challenge!
The bride also wanted some extra bling on this cake!! For the ribbons, I added rhinestone chain, but for the gumpaste peonies, it took a little extra creativity. I took some needle-nosed pliers and cut out the middle of the flower, taking care to leave as much of the wire as a could. Then I used the wire to crimp on a rhinestone button I got at the craft store.
But I know you're really wondering about those butter cream ruffles, right? Well, it took me a few tries to get it right, but it's really not that hard. Do you want to learn how to do it? If so, leave me a comment and I'll show you next week!
