I would start with a base color of white and then drop individual colors in various spots. Then taking a toothpick, make a swirl with it. Then it looks like they just cut it into panels. Ive seen this effect done better with chocolate transfers though which you might want to try out.

It could be chocolate transfer sheets, with white chocolate on them. Either that, or they poured the white chocolate onto a slab/cookie sheet, and then marbled the pink and light green chocolate on top. Like making bark.

Thanks for your interest Sugar. I'm flattered that someone found a pic of my cake and was curious about it! icon_biggrin.gif I'm happy to tell you how I did the panels...Jennifer is correct.

I melted white chocolate and separated two smaller amounts that I tinted pink and green. Poured the white onto waxed paper and spread til even. Dropped TBLSP fulls of the color choco and used a knife to cut it through and lift and swirl. Let set til not quite hardened then scored it, and used a pizza roller to cut and separate panels.

Chocolate transfers certainly are lovely and appropriate for many cake styles (and they're perfect because they're printed by machine). This method gave the chocolate panels a handcrafted appearance with texture and substance. The client loved it!

Have fun! thumbs_up.gif

Swede-cakes~ your cake is beautiful, and it makes me laugh when CC'ers don't ever seem to 'go to the source' of their questions! I've done this with some other 'professional decorators' as you all are (I am not), and all of you have responded to me. Yes, the World of CC is wonderful and filled with very kind and talented people!
