Red & Gold Ruffle Cake. The gold cachous' were rolled in gold lustre powder mixed with a drop of clear white spirit to get the antique gold colour required. Once dried they were individually stuck on. Each ruffle was made of red fondant cut with a circular cookie cutter and then pinched into a ruffle. I mixed bought bright red fondant with rose gel paste to get this colour. I made the letters and heart using gum paste and edible glitter.
