Hooray! It’s my 2 year blogaversary! I totally missed my first one. Then one of my fellow blogging friends was celebrating hers so I figured I would look to see when I wrote my first ever post. It happened to be March 6, 2011 and it was terrible! While I was proud of it at the time, I definitely feel like I have improved my blogging skills since then. I know that I am officially a week late to this celebration, but it was also just my birthday! I wrote my first blog post 4 days before my birthday, so I guess I will be celebrating these momentous occasions together from here on out.
To celebrate, I decided to make myself a cake I would love to receive. I have been seeing this ombre ruffle trend, started by Maggie Austin, all over and immediately fell in love with it! When I found out that Maggie was giving a Craftsy course on making this cake, I was so excited! Ombre has been in style for quite some time now, and who doesn’t love girly and whimsical ruffles? The cake would not be complete without some matching ombre ruffle cabbage roses. I am absolutely in love with these flowers and might be making them quite often. I learned all the secrets behind this gorgeous cake from the master herself.
I’m sure you are wondering what I was planning to do with a giant 2 tier cake all to myself. Well it just so happens that my sister-in-law had her bridal shower scheduled for this same weekend. I figured I would make to bring to the bridal shower. I chose the purple color scheme to pay tribute to the color of her bridal party. The cake was a huge hit! Happy birthaversary to me and happy bridal shower Miri!
