Pink Lemonade Cake

Pink Lemonade Cake with Swiss Meringue Buttercream and Cream Cheese Filling, decorated with a Ruffle Design

How gorgeous is this cake??  And I have a secret…it was super simple to decorate.  It took me a few minutes of playing with the pastry bag to figure out how to make the ruffles, but once I got the hang of it, the whole cake was covered in ruffles in only 10 minutes.

The cake layers were just ok, but the cake came together beautifully when the layers were covered in a pink lemonade simple syrup, sandwiched together with cream cheese filling, and coated with the meringue buttercream (with some lemon zest mixed in.)

Happy first birthday to my beautiful niece, Evie!
