Behind the Scenes @ Sweet & Saucy: Circular Ruffle Cake

Well hello there! Fall’s here and we’re just loving wearing sweaters again! We hope that wherever you are, you’re enjoying the beautiful autumn weather as much as we are!

This post, Kaytee is here to show you how to put together this little beauty:

First you make my darkest color of fondant, as this is an ombre cake, and to get the lighter colors, you progressively add white. Then you roll it through the pasta machine to a 3.IMG_20141010_105121

You take out my circle cutter and select the size you wish to use, cutting out circles and covering them and the remainder with cellophane. We do this with fondant and gum paste in order to prevent it from drying out.IMG_20141010_105455 Then you place my circle on my foam pad. IMG_20141010_105325We use these pads with a ball tool, most often with sugar flowers, to thin out the edges of the petals. In this case, we use it like we do for other ruffles, applying pressure half on the edge of the fondant, and half on the pad. Make sure not to press too hard, as you will tear through.IMG_20141010_105334 Then you crumple the circle from the center.IMG_20141010_105352 And then you apply it to the buttercream.IMG_20141010_105409 Then you continue with the rest of the circles you cut, going up the cake, and over.
