Ruffle Cake 1- Me 0

Well I have been very interested in trying to make the Ruffle Cake I had seen on Amanda's Blog "i am Baker". Well today was the day! Note to self and others, make sure your frosting is thick enough. Oh and... be patient! ;)


First make your cakes and cut them in half:
Next, start your crumb coat; {this does not have to look perfect at all!}

Once you are done with your crumb coat, freeze for 5-10 minutes. Remove, and crumb coat again... {the only reason I did this twice was because I was using two different frostings inside, vanilla and chocolate}
Next, freeze for another 5 minutes.
While it is in the freezer, put your tip #103 into your piping bag and fill with frosting.
With the smaller end facing out and the larger end slightly touching the cake, squeeze out frosting in a straight line and then move it back and fourth until you reach the top.

Once finished, ENJOY! But take some pics, I would love to see them!
Here is mine, oddly enough, something happened and it was on that plate for no longer than 2 minutes. ;)
