Dusty Rose Ribbon Cake

 Dusty Rose Ribbon Cake  on Cake Central

From today's wedding. 6", 9" and 12" rounds of Dark Chocolate, Tahitian Vanilla and Strawberry-Vanilla.

There are tiny dots piped on the sides, but it's really hard to see them!

I hate putting a satin ribbon around buttercream tiers, but here I had to, so I cut the strips of waxed paper and put them around each tier first...then slipped the ribbon on top.

It's beautiful and you have such shape edges on ecah tier. How do you get them so sharp and defined. I can see some of the dots. It's just lovely!

Wonderful job and it looks so right for the occasion. I love the pastel color flowers on the tiers.

I guess the sharp edges come from the plastic pastry scraper. The cake's sides are never hard to get perfectly smooth for me...but the tops, I struggle with their smoothness every time!!

Yes, they were given to me in 3 huge clusters...but I had to tear two of them apart to use for little bunches on the sides instead. I guess they thought the cake's ledges would be much wider, but it was a 6" 9" and 12"

I just used a pearl-headed pin at the back for each ribbon and eased it into the cake through both ribbon ends. The wax paper underneath prevents it from getting grease-stains from the buttercream.
