Swiss Meringue Buttercream Ruffle Cake.

I first spotted this wonderfully frilly number on and I thought that it looked like a good place to start on my baking adventure. I wanted a challenge. And as I've never made a Swiss meringue buttercream before or used a piping bag, I figured that this was as tricky as it gets for a cake decorating novice.

After doing little more research online, I discovered the
incredible Sweetapolita.
 I just loved her version the Buttercream Ruffle Cake and
 I adored the contrast of her Rich and Dark Chocolate Cake
against the pretty peachy pink buttercream.
 So I decided to give it a go!

 Thanks Sweetapolita for the endless inspiration!

The final result is far from perfect but for my first attempt I have to admit that I'm feeling pretty proud!!

You can find the original Sweetapolita recipe for the cake layers here.
