So l was pleasantly relieved when l came across a post from Rosie from Sweetapolita called A Madish Tea Party which took prettiness to a new level for me and inspired some magical ideas! How can you not fall in love with this beautiful tea party?? And what was even better is that Rosie posts the recipes to go with her lovely photos so you too can recreate her masterpieces! I have always loved to bake a cake but now l am inspired by her ruffles and layers of deliciousness that l am going to attempt my first ever ruffle cake and try and recreate 7 of them for Kaitlyn's Party as each girl needs to have a cake to celebrate their Unbirthday too!!! I had already decided that each girl was going to decorate their very own cupcakes to take home as a favour but also thought they could indulge in celebrating their Unbirthday and blow out a candle when it was cake time but now after seeing these amazing cakes l am very tempted to make each girl a mini ruffle cake as they look so scrumptious but maybe that will be a bit OTT?? But seriously when don't l go over the top??? My brother has made a very good point that when people come to my parties they don't bring a plate with them they take one home instead!! I just can't help but want to bake and create all things pretty and so now l am inspired to master the ruffle as well as the macaron!!
Thank you Rosie for creating such scrumptiousness and for inspiring me to take cake to a new level of deliciousness! You are a Cake Goddess!
