Ribbon Cake

I love the look of this cake. 
I have been wanting to try this frosting technique for a long time,
 but never had the nerve. 
It looked hard. 
Really hard.
Really hard and intimidating. 

But so pretty.

OK, what's the worse that could happen?? 
I try my best and if it doesn't turn out, I just don't post it !! 
Soooo, with pastry bag in hand, I piped my heart out. 
And then I piped some more. 
I thought piping ribbons would be hard, but it's really not.
I think it looks pretty darn good. 

Just look at those three luscious layers.
The cake is made with Devil's food and frosted with swiss almond butter cream.
I tinted the frosting pink to go with all those girly ribbons !!


  1. This is gorgeous! I can't believe it's your first time doing this frosting. It's gorgeous.

  2. Oh I am so glad to see that you've linked up to "Made it on Monday"..
