Everyone who hears these words of Mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25

Ruffle Cake

I don’t know if I’ve told y’all before, but Pinterest is rapidly becoming my new favorite pastime.  It’s sooo full of inspiration.  Crafts, decorating, cooking…

Even cake!

My latest cake creation is actually a combination of ideas that I’ve seen on Pinterest.  Ruffles and bunting.

Two reasons why I love this cake:

1.  The Ruffles.

They are the “wow” factor of the cake.  Although the ruffles look complicated, they are relatively simple to create if you have basic piping skills.  I have to admit I wondered whether or not I could recreate the look, but I think my ruffles turned out pretty good!

2.  The Bunting.  An adorable idea.

To create the bunting, I used some of my scrapbooking supplies to whip up a few flags, then strung the flags on some ribbon.  The bunting is suspended from two wooden skewers.  The best thing about this bunting is that it takes absolutely no cake decorating skills to create it.  If you can use a pair of scissors, you can make your own.

Now if you’re a cake decorator, you know there’s nothing better than seeing party guests enjoying your cake.

At the same time, however, there’s also nothing worse than seen party guests enjoying your cake, because this is what happens when they do.

But you get used to it…

At least with this cake I got to enjoy a piece myself. Smile
