A Hand Painted Cake

 

A little cake with plenty of hand painted details all around!

 

I always wanted to paint giant flowers on a cake and this project gave me the perfect opportunity to practice this new technique, inspired by a larger cake by Maggie Austin!

This little cake had 5 inches of chocolate cake, filled with Dulce de Leche and covered with chocolate ganache.  I finished the cake with Marshmallow fondant and hand painted the design free hand, using food coloring (gel colors and 50/50 vodka/water) using the fondant as canvas for this “watercolor” effect.
