Okay, so I've been really, really bad at my blog the past few months. I have had lots of things I've wanted to blog about, but just haven't had the time. It's heavy wedding-planning season, so I've been super busy talking to lots of new brides I'm excited to work with and have been getting ready for the upcoming bridal season. Needless to say, my blog has been neglected, so I'm going to try to do better.
I wanted to talk about one of my favorite trends for this year, which is ruffles! There's so many ways to do ruffles on cakes, from vertical to horizontal to fondant ruffles and creamy buttercream ruffles.
Ruffles can go so many different directions style-wise too. They can give a vintage flair and even a contemporary or modern flare. I think that's one of the reasons I'm so in love with them and why I'm so excited to try a lot of these techniques this year.
Ruffles look great in all white or ivory and super fun in different colors as well. I have such a hard time picking a favorite style!
Ruffles add a lot of fullness and softness to a cake. Combine them with flowers for a stunningly beautiful cake! But ruffles can also stand alone and add just enough texture to a cake to make it interesting but still simple and chic. If you really want to glam up the cake, add some pearls, jewels, or buttons and you've got a showstopper!
Here's some examples of some different ruffle techniques I've been able to try lately, but I'm looking forward to a lot more of these fun styles to come!
Which one is your favorite?
