Ruffled cake with gum paste flower
I love making cakes and goodies for co-workers birthdays . . . and try to make something I know they will like. Becky is not only a co-worker, but one of the three people I know who checks this blog regularly, so I really wanted to make her something special!
Her favorite color is blue and her favorite store is Anthropologie, so I wanted to make something that incorporated some fashion style. When I saw this cake on MyCakeSchool.com, I thought I'd give it a try! This was my first experience with gum paste, and it was a lot of fun. I have a lot to learn, but I was pretty happy with how this flower turned out.
While we celebrated in the office on Friday, today is Becky's actual birthday. So if you're reading this, Happy Birthday, Becky!!
