And it was quite a literal whirl...whirling and whirling curls of buttercream over the entire cake.
I love the old fashioned and decidedly feminine look of this style. It would be perfect for a ladies tea, shower, or oh let's say maybe...Mother's Day? ;)
The cake is a mango cake made with fresh mango puree. It's filled with more of the puree and frosted in vanilla buttercream. A flavor combination that I think is perfect for our warming weather.
The ruffling technique is actually pretty simple, honest...so don't be afraid to give it a try! There are a number of great tutorials available. Check out the amazing Sweetapolita's Rich & Ruffled cake.
And for a great video, take at look at the YouTube tutorial provided by My Sweet & Saucy, who's site is chock full of more drool worthy confections and photos.
