My watercolour cake is inspired by Rosie’s most beautiful Pastel Swirl Cake over at Sweetapolita. For my cake, I used a thick-consistency buttercream and topped it with chocolate sprinkles. I had so much fun with it, I wanna try it again.
Thinner icing next time
Maybe next time I’ll use a thin-consistency icing and keep it more goopy as Rosie recommends in her video tutorial. The colours would probably blend more and the buttercream would be easier to work with.
I found that the buttercream crusted over fast so I had to work quickly. I kind of like the chalky appearance that makes it look a bit more like a fresco than a watercolour painting, don’tcha think?
Nature’s colour palette
My colour inspiration comes from nature. Blue for sky, yellow for sun and green for grass.
Inside, there’s a triple-layer, dense and moist marble cake with buttercream icing. Wanna see? Of course you do! Here it is.
Also, check out my seven-second video clip to see its evolution.
What do you think? Should I try a redo and goop it up more? What colours do you recommend?
