Shabby Ruffle Pink Cake Tutorial!

Soooo, yesterday, I was headed to Michael's craft store when I got the idea to stop in the Salvation Army with two small children. 
My intentions were to stir up a batch of faux cupcakes and instead,
I was derailed by my super deals and the Smurf princesses my daughter and her play date. 
I found the most fabulous deal on Shabby ruffled lace .50 cents!!!
Still intimidated by the faux cake makers and flustered excited by the small children.
I decided to skip Michael's and use foam and fabric to make my cakes...
 A close up of the slice of Shabby Ruffle Cake!
Deelish fluffiness!
The foam came in a box of packing peanuts I just used scissors and cut shapes.
I made a slice for each of the girls, for theirs, I used pink and white polka dot ribbon.
My sweet little princesses also cut MANY foam shapes with their little scissors!
Here are the supplies I used...
Shabby ruffle ribbon
hot glue
satin roses and misc doo dads
white linen napkin
Cut your foam into desired shape then glue white linen over the foam.
Try to nip and tuck the fabric and glue to fabric, the foam will melt.
Once the foam is covered in fabric you can glue on your pretty ruffled trim.
Add lots of rose goodies and doo dads to the top for maximum fluff appeal!
Waa Laa a delightful treat!
All this cake making made me hungry for the real thing!
I am no gourmet but these box cupcakes turned out pretty yummy!
I will be sharing this fabulous adventure with...
Squishy hugs,
Mr. Romantic and I on Easter...
