DIY Vintage Ruffle Cake

Whew!…This was a busy week for us! My little brother got married last weekend at a gorgeous ranch called Soda Springs in northern AZ. It was AMAZING..I can’t wait to share pics of all the details. My gift to them was creating wedding decor around their sweet and stylish vintage theme. I will be sharing more of my projects in coming posts.

Here is the cute couple sharing their first dance!

Yesterday was our 5th wedding anniversary and I was inspired to make a vintage looking ruffle cake to celebrate. I watched a great video tutorial from My Sweet & Saucy to get an idea of how to make one. Also this was technically my second ruffle cake. My first one was kind of a big fail and looked wonky and got ruined in the car on the way to the party…sigh.

Oh and I am so not a profesh cake decorator at all…..just trying to upgrade my usual 9×13 sheet cake 🙂

This is a number 104 Wilton petal cake decorating tip. All you do is hold the tip facing down on the sides of the cake. Go back and forth in one inch wide sections to create your ruffles all the way around the cake. It really does goes fast. One tip though. I used store bought icing (with food coloring) and it wasn’t stiff enough. I added powdered sugar and that helped.

Oh and this was a box cake…cause that’s how I roll sometimes..well most times 🙂 It still tasted yummy! My kids kept asking whose birthday it was…so confusing with all these weddings and birthdays, and anniversaries!

I made a mini bunting banner out of fabric triangles and hot glued them to a piece of floral bamboo I had.

Happy 5th anniversary to the best hubby and dad a girl could ever dream of!



Love it?

  5. Very pretty cake. I've seen some tutorials for the ribbon cake, but haven't been brave enough to try it myself. Our 5th anniversary is in 2 weeks, maybe I'll work up the courage to attempt this as a special treat.
