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, 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!!
