These delicate watercolor cake designs are a great way to add artistry to your desserts and transform them into works of art. The designs are whimsical, fluid and full of color making the aesthetic perfect to use for parties, birthdays or gatherings.
The watercolor design of this cake is actually made using a watercolor and gold leaf kit put together by Sprinkle Bakes and Brit + Co. The kit can help any amateur baker turn their desserts into breathtaking works using bright orange, pink, turquoise and purple edible dyes. The trick to replicating the effect of water color is to use a sponge to apply the dye into concentrated areas and then using a brush and water to bleed the color out. This tutorial works best on fondant icing that makes for a great base for the dye to be fluid.
