Hey there! I was wondering what the best way to go about applying "watercolor" accents to my buttercream icing would be?
Thanks for your help!
define watercolor accents -- you could use an air brush
If you're using buttercream you could just smear a little colored icing onto the cake then smooth it out with a spatula. Dragging it around the cake will spread it out and if you get it thin in spots it looks transparent like watercolors. Use a spatula or a bench scraper.
Put it on a little lighter then these, but you can see the variations in the color where I scraped the darker color off and it shows the lighter one underneath. I don't know if this is what you're looking for but it's really easy to do. It's how I always do the sky on cakes that need a sky because you can make it blue and white in a really irregular way. https://www.flickr.com/photos/acaketoremember/15647352672/
