Offset Chevron Cake

Offset Chevron CakeI was asked by a fellow blogger and friend, Ronnie Fein, to make her a special birthday cake.  Ronnie has a lovely blog called Kitchen Vignettes where she shares her favorite dishes.  Her recipes often seem simple, but they are complex and perfect in flavor.  When she asked me to help her celebrate her special day I was so excited, especially since she left me in charge of the design.

Offset Chevron Pattern

I am really in love with modern patterns and love applying those simple clean lines to my cakes.  I recently took a Craftsy course (my new obsession) led by Jessica Harris and learned the techniques needed to make this cake.  I couldn’t wait to try it and I love the results.  The offset chevron is so modern yet elegant and I’m pleased with the color choices.

Fantasy FlowerThis hand cut fantasy flower was the perfect finishing touch to this simple cake.  I painted the edges with a little silver luster dust to give it a little extra glam.  If you were wondering, the inside of the cake is a white cake recipe that Ronnie shared with me.  It was delicious!  You can see her post about this cake here.  Happy birthday Ronnie, and many more!

 

  • Oh, I am so honored by this post. The cake was such a hit at our house. I absolutely loved the simplicity of it and the combination of aqua and purple (in fact I am looking to buy some clothes with those colors in mind). It was a festive birthday and I thank you again for your beautiful cake. Delicious too!

  • This cake is so beautiful! Love the lines and colors. So curious about what kind of cake is underneath.

    I think I saw this cake on Ronnie’s blog. I’m obsessed with chevron right now. I just got a chevron custom canopy for my bugaboo and custom curtains for my son’s room (I love Etsy for those kinds of things!)
