Romantic Ruffles and Mums Cake is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made a version of this cake. I didn't punch holes in the ruffles, but seeing it in this picture I think it looks alot nicer with the holes. I would recommend using a small tip to punch the holes for sure, take the time and make it look nice. You can cover the whole cake with fondant or just at the top and then ruffles at the side. You could use buttercream on the top if you prefer and underneath the ruffles. Make sure all of the ruffles end pieces are at the back of the cake. When placing ruffles make sure to start from the bottom and go up. If you know how to make these flowers or have purchases flowers you simply use buttercream or royal icing and place flowers on top. If you want to make the flowers yourself you will need to learn them. Nice unique deliate cake you don't see very often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ruffles are a great way to add emphasis to a simple, charming wedding cake. It would also be good for a "girls' gathering," no matter the age. Ruffles can be very intimidating. Not really that difficult, you just have to remember to roll the fondant VERY thin to keep it from being so heavy that it falls. As for the mums, LOVE them! I have all kinds of ideas for usage running through my head - Thanksgiving, Halloween, Fall weddings, Vintage, etc.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I like the mums and the eyelet lace, however, I would place something along the upper edge of the lace to cover it. It looks too bare. Maybe some smaller coordinating flowers? Or even colored 'beads'. Just something to conceal the edge.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I still think the mums look like artichokes...would be prettier with roses, or calla lilies, or carnations
