55c4278ba9868.jpegHello everyone,


a good friend has asked me to make her daughters baptism cake and has sent me a picture. She would like me to create the bottom tier only. But when I zoom it gets blurry.... So my question is if you can make it out? Is the bottom tier covered in frilled out fondant rose petals? Or is it a buttercream design? Please help as I don't know how the heck to do this and I want it to be pretty for her little girl!

It looks like buttercream to me. If it would be fondant petals it's normally applied the other way around (wide end down) if that makes sense. This seems to have a cone shape with the wide end up.

But why don't you ask your friend anyway if she would prefer buttercream or fondant?

Watch the Shawna McGreevy tutorial on making ruffles. She rocks!

Agree with Shockolata. It is the same ruffles, just more of them, closer together. I just enlarged the photo from the link AAtKT gave you on my monitor and it's the same thing, but where the tutorial has about 9 rows, this other cake has 12 (on an even less tall cake). That tutorial will work to perfection.
