Hi all, I am hoping one of you might be able to help me out with how to achieve the amazing ruffle effect on this Maggie Austin cake - or be able to point me in the direction of a tutorial if one already exists out there icon_smile.gif

I have been asked to make a cake using this effect for a wedding & I have never tried my hand at this before so need to do some studying up on the technique. Any help anybody can give me would be very much appreciated thumbs_up.gif

Thanks, Rach

Much easier than you may think! This video tutorial is awesome. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SxT9f1-N2fI&feature=player_embedded

The cake, in your photo, uses the same technique for ruffles but layer them top to bottom to get the upside down look.

I layered bottom to top for the cake I have attached. I used a straight scallop cutter (it doesn't have to be the circle).

Ok...photo is too big. I'll have to upload it & share a link.
