This cake reminds me of a ruffle-puff pink bathing cap that perhaps a lovely, languid synchronized swimmer would wear gliding her way through a flowery water dance, or a cute little furry pillbox hat on top of a stylish head of sleek hair. There was a time when I used to dress crazier than I do now. Now my style is much more mellow. I think I will dress crazy one day again – when I’m an old Chinese lady with silvery white grey hair cut into an angular haircut, wearing a giant avant-garde blazer and a super weird and expensive pair of interesting Italian-made eyeglasses. That’s how I’ve always imagined I would look when I’m old. But hey, maybe I’ll just be wearing green flannelette jogging pants and a really comfortable, warm sweater with an even warmer, more comfortable sweater vest on top of that.
Back to the cake – I love this cake!! A 9 inch round beauty, with tinted-pink interior vanilla cake layers, raspberry jam and light pink buttercream exterior. Doug ordered this for his girlfriend Azita’s 26th birthday… pretty great!
Happy Birthday Azita! Hope you loved your ruffle cake.
