Professional Photo – Gold Ruffle Wedding Cake

I’ll be honest, photography isn’t my thing.  I’m a cake maker, not a photographer.  When I see professional pictures of my cakes, I’m usually floored.  Here’s a REAL photo from Danielle and Lionel’s wedding:



I love this so much that I didn’t want to ruin it with my watermark.  If you’re in need of a wedding photographer, you should totally call Christy.  She’s so talented!

    how did you do the gold edge on the ruffle?

    • Hi Amy,

      Those ruffles are actually fondant (with a little Tylose powder kneaded in). To get the gold on the edge, I wait until the ruffles are dry enough to touch, usually the next day. Next, I dip a tooth pick in my gold airbrush paint and lightly drag the tooth pick along the edge of the ruffle. It picks up just a hint of the gold without leaving a heavy line.

      Unfortunately I’m not sure if you could achieve the same look with a buttercream ruffle. You could try painting a gold stripe inside your piping bag before filling it with icing, but I don’t know how accurate that would be.

      Sorry I can’t give you any more help than that. Thanks for checking out my cakes!
