This wedding cake had a Bible verse piped on it plus lace and a bottom tier covered with little fondant ruffles. The topper was a handmade set of bride and groom birds.
To make these ruffles you need a lot of little fondant rounds, which you can make ahead and freeze.
This wedding cake was based on the bride’s dress, which was covered in ruffles that had a slightly pink tinge to them.
I did white chocolate fondant ruffles that cascaded down the tiers and opened in the front to show the piped lace that was on the bodice of the dress.
The ruffles were brushed lightly with pink petal dust to make the bottom darker than the top.
This wedding cake was grey buttercream with white lace piped on to match the lace from the mother of the bride’s wedding dress.
The bride also had some of the lace incorporated into other areas of the reception and she wanted to include it on the cake.
The bottom tier was covered with white chocolate fondant ruffles.
This wedding cake had red and orange ombre ruffles in the bottom tier with a gold gumpaste peony and green leaves.
The bottom and middle tiers were taller than the top tier, and there was going to be a topper.

If you’re going to make large unwired wafer paper flowers, be aware that gum glue can make the paper curl. Don’t do them the day before you need the flower in case you have to add more petals to them to make up for the curling action!
I had to add more petals to the yellow flowers to make them wider after the gum glue curled them up.
This little wedding cake had buttercream ruffles. I piped them on with a rose tip, then added the gumpaste flowers.
I like the way this looked, even though the ruffles aren’t as thin as the gumpaste ones. It’s very fluffy…
These four tiers of loveliness had fondant ruffles and raspberry gumpaste peonies.
It was ruffly and fabulous!
And the bride’s mother was surprised that the flowers were sugar because she spent the evening thinking that I’d used real ones even though I said that I don’t like pesticides. So that went well.
This ombre ruffle wedding cake was done in shades of teal to match the wedding color scheme.
This pretty ruffle cake had gumpaste hydrangeas in blue and green on the edges of the tiers.
