Ruffles and Roses.

So I know I haven't posted for a few weeks... what can I say but, life gets busy and time gets away. So anyway today for something fun I decided to practice piping with Buttercream. I have seen these lovely ruffle cakes and they are just so beautiful... how hard could it be!?!

Not too hard it turns out! This was my first attempt and I just love the real life version as much as the photos I have seen. I did decide to keep it plain on the outside... but couldn't resist a bit of fun on the inside...

I followed this tutorial on YouTube and found it was the easiest to follow 

Next I decided to try out buttercream roses on cupcakes! These also were fairly easy after a bit of practice. I did watch a few different videos weeks ago and adapted the technique for me being a lefty and all. The cakes look lovely, not perfect... but you have to start somewhere right??

This is my favourite one... colourful cake with buttercream rose and a light sprinkling of colour!

Anyway hope you enjoyed reading this edition as much as my kids enjoyed eating my creations.
