My first attempt at a Ruffle Cake. I was not impressed with the results. I need some work on this one.
I love when I get asked to make a fun cake! I laughed right out loud when I saw the request. Don’t get me wrong, I love doing them all, but when you are just not interested in the theme, sometimes it’s hard to get into it. These were not the case. I had so much fun making these ‘Poop Emoji’ cupcakes. Most people thought they were hilarious, some slightly offended, others didn’t think they would be able to eat them. But int he end all that matters is the Birthday Girl liked them! Can’t wait to see what the next request is…
I was asked to do a burlap shower cake. This was the first time I had been asked/heard of putting burlap on a cake. I honestly wasn’t sure it was possible! Burlap seems dirty (as it makes me think of potato bags) and something that should be no where near a cake! I told her I would have to look into it, before I totally committed.
I was quite surprised how many people do this! I had no idea. There were a lot of people fore and against it, a with anything. But after reading some excellent tips and what kind to use, this is what I came up with.
She like it. I received a lot of excellent feedback, everyone loved the look. Not sure I would want to eat it though… it sheds, frays etc. It may look pretty, but I really wouldn’t recommend it.
