Pink Ruffles and Bows Birthday Cake

Ever since I acquired some nifty cake decorating skills, I have been dreaming of what my birthday cake would look like (and praying I could actually make it).

It was a milestone birthday for me this year and I wanted something really special to tie in with the celebration. I know it sounds crazy, but for the past few years, I had been looking forward to turning 30. It is a symbol of maturity and stability and hopefully people may take me more seriously. 🙂

I spent a lot of time online looking for inspirations. One particular tutorial caught my eye and I had my heart set on the pink ombre ruffles cakes. It had my two favourite things: pink and bows…lots of them.

Many thanks to Make-Fabulous-Cakes.com for sharing the wonderful tutorial.

P/S:  People were surprised that I wanted to make my own cake, but I couldn’t let that cake decorating skills go to waste.  In fact, my husband did make me a birthday cake to bring to work.  I will share the pictures in my next post.
