It all started with a pillow I saw on Etsy.
It became this cake:

I liked the design so much I did it again:

I almost did another one for The Cake Blog’s Twelve Cakes of Christmas based on this Crate and Barrel pillow (but then I changed my mind):
And then, inspired by this heart wreath by Lasting Memories (and the multi-colored ruffles in the Crate and Barrel pillow above), I decided to make one for Valentine’s Day.
As it turns out, making a ruffle out of fondant is almost exactly like making one out of felt (just without the straight pins).
