Pink Ruffle Cake

Am I the only one to not know what a half birthday is? Because apparently I missed the little guy’s. And I’d like to say the cake you see below was for him, but um, no. Not only is it pink but he doesn’t like cake.

Pink Ruffle Cake from Bakers Royale

You can imagine how bad I felt when Matt explained to me “it’s a thing” and I had nothing made or ready for him. Although, ironically, I had this big celebratory cake, which by the way is for an upcoming project that needed to be shot in advance, so the recipe is coming. Bakers Royale Ruffle Cake

If you want to see how to pipe a cake like this, stay tuned. I’ll be doing a detailed step-by-step workshop soon (details coming soon). Trust me the piping on this cake is pretty easy to do once you see how.

As for the little guy’s half birthday, I’m working my way out of missing it. His request: macarons with no filling. Whaaat? I know. I can’t even wrap my head around that—no frosting, okay—but no fruit filling of any sort? Who birthed that child?

    What a beautiful cake!
    I didn’t know anything about this half-birthday business, but now I’m kind of feeling ripped off…

    Ruffle perfection and that topper – love! (Trying to wrap my mind around macarons with no filling.. is that possible? What if you turn them into ice cream sandwiches?)

    That cake is beautiful! It’s hard to believe that it is easy to do, I can’t wait to see how you do it! I love the pale pink color too! Where did you get the cute little flag banner?

    Awwww, your little guy is adorable. I used to celebrate my half-birthdays too growing up.

    Now this cake – if he won’t eat it, I will!
