This is one of my first buttercream cakes I've been truly happy with! I still struggle so much with getting my buttercream to look the way I want it too - something I'm continuing to work on! :) Vanilla buttermilk cake, vanilla buttercream filling and frosting. I used my "Marvelous Molds" brand chevron mold/cutter to make the fondant chevron strips and piped the buttercream ruffles on the top tier. The fondant/gum paste topper was cut using one of my fabulous cutters from "Not Just Cakes by Annie" - was so happy to finally get to use that!
