This cake was for a friends baby shower. I was obviousely inspired by the many ruffle cakes here on CC but the one that convinced me to try it was a two-tiered one by CakeSue. This is a 6 inch round cake with 5 , 1 inch layers inside. Each layer is also a shade of pink to match the change in color of the outside.
The flower on top is my fantasy peony, made with a 5 petal cutter and no wires. I plan on writing up a tutorial on the flower because it doesn't require too many tools. Hopefully CC will let me upload a pic of the inside as well as the outside.
