Color Splash Cake
What does this cake remind you of? Think Indian, think festive… Any ideas?
I was honored when I was recently asked to contribute a cake to India’s 1st Cake Art Magazine.
The Theme was Indian Festivals. As an Indian who lives overseas this is such a special feeling to be looked as an Indian artist, truly grateful.
What’s your favorite Indian festival? I love Holi!!!
So for this project I have used the Festival of Holi as my inspiration. For those of you that do not know what the festival of Holi is about. I can say it in one word and my Indian friends will agree… ‘color’ Yes colors!
I love how color is seen splashing or dripping during this festival.You break all boundary’s and go wild with color and that’s what I wanted to replicate on my cake.
The Color Splash Cake….
The cake topper has a Color Splash Effect – the magazine also has a tutorial on how to make this using Candy Melts (and Candy Colors) I have shared some detail pictures on how I made the Color splash topper on the magazine and at a later stage I will share the tutorial on my blog too. For now you will have to click on the link below to read the tutorial on the magazine.
The middle tier has this Color drip effect. I’ve used lots of gel colors and my favorite brushesto create this effect and I love how the drip turned out. I have many of you ask me how I created this without making a big mess and I will share this with you in future too.
The bottom tier is a printed peasly pattern with some edible lace on wafer paper.
The very top tier and the board are simple metallic effect techniques using Gold luster dustwhich I shared in my previous Tip Thursday on Creating Metallic Effects on Cakes and an FMM border
