Watercolour & Bubbles


This week I tried out a new technique, watercolour buttercream.  The whole process was surprisingly pleasing as the randomness of the colour is what made it beautiful.


I covered the entire cake with Shannon’s American Meringue Buttercream. This has to be the smoothest buttercream I have ever had the pleasure of working with! Do yourself a favour and go and check out her page, the recipe is there waiting for you to try.


The top of the cake was adorned with gelatine bubbles.  There are heaps of tutorials available on making these if you are interested in trying, just have a look on YouTube.  Instead of colouring the gelatine while liquid, I chose to airbrush the dry bubbles to add colour.  I did add pearl lustre dust to the gelatine liquid on one batch but you could airbrush this on too if you chose to.


This cake was for a lovely baby shower 😊
