Step 5: Continue the process, creating 1″ inch columns surrounding the entire cake.
Step 6: How you want to finish the top is up to you! I decided to continue the ruffle theme and used the same Wilton no. 102 tip for the top of the cake. Starting from the outside and working in, I worked my way around the cake moving the icing tip back and forth as I spiralled the icing in.
It’s just that easy! Now the biggest lesson I learned the hard way was this: Don’t try and finish frosting a ruffle cake all in one shot! As I got half way through piping ruffles, I realized they were becoming more messy and starting to droop. What was happening, is the icing bag began to warm with the heat of my hands. Once I realized this, I stuck the icing bag and the cake back in the refrigerator for 5-10 minutes and once again the icing held its shape and created the lovely ruffles I was looking for.
