Hello pretty stripes and ruffles!!
I love this cake! It's so sassy and graphic! - my style to a "T"! Carrie with The Cake Blog did a fabulous write up on this cake!! Thanks Carrie!! You can see it here!!
This is the second cake I created for my Craftsy Class!! This cake showcases how to create a horizontal design on a cake using the wax paper transfer method. You can use this method to do horizontal straight stripes or chevron stripes! You can do wavy stripes, stacked stripes, bold thick stripes or bands. It's an incredible way to keep your horizontal designs NICE and straight!
The striped cake might look familiar (seen here). Although this cute striped cake works great on it's own, I've been playing with other designs that work with it too in case you have a larger party! I love this look! Bold, yet feminine!
And, then there are these beautiful ruffles! A stylized look to ruffles. I wanted something bold to go with the stripes. A frilly ruffle wouldn't look quite right unless the color of the top stripes was more subtle and neutral.
I decided to alternate the ruffles with a lighter and darker shade of pink. It's very subtle, which I love because it looks like the light is reflecting it differently...but, it's different shades of color. Something you can play with!
In the class I give you the templates and techniques to create these ruffles and the graphic bow that's up on the top tier. If you haven't checked out my Craftsy class, click here and head on over! :)
Thanks for looking!! I can't wait to see what you all create!!
