Ups & Downs of Frosting

Ups & Downs of Frosting

When creating perfect ruffles for a beautiful Duncan Hines ruffle cake, you should begin with a lightly frosted cake. You'll also need a petal decorating tip and a pastry bag. Next, put the tip into the bag and fill it up with frosting. You can color your frosting with a colored gel paste. Once you're ready, hold the bag straight up and down with the narrow end of the tip facing you and the wider and facing the edge of the cake. Squeeze in an up-and-down, back-and-forth motion all the way up the side of the cake. When you've finished the first column of ruffles, move all the way around the cake until you end up with your own beautiful work of art. Enjoy!
