My daughter created a beautiful sgraffito platter during her ceramics class last year. I had never heard of the term sgraffito before she brought this beauty home but as soon as I saw it I knew I wanted to transfer it onto cake!
Sgraffito is a technique where the surface layer is scratched off to reveal a contrasting colour underneath. Used in pottery and plaster walls, it can be quite intricate.
I was surprised at how quickly my sgraffito cake came together and am quite happy with the results. I have another one in the planning, a more geometric design that is very simple.
