Buttercream Ombre Ruffle Cake

Buttercream Ombre Ruffle Cake on Cake Central

my first attempt making buttercream ruffles working from bottom to top of cake...it didn't go so well. the weight of the ruffles began to "pull" the top coat of frosting off the cake and everything started sliding downward. you can see stress cracks at the top of the cake. it eventually fell completely apart. with more time I should have refrigerated the cake longer before beginning the ruffle work. the icing I used for the base (boiled milk/heritage variety) was too light in comparison to the buttercream (high ration shortening based) I used for the ruffles. at least my gumpaste flower turned out pretty : )
