I am LOVIN’ the ombré look!
Ombré means shaded or graduated in tone, and it is beautiful!
I’ve also been enjoying the petal technique, which apparently has been around for a long time.
So . . .
I decided to put them together!
Here’s a close up look
With the blue tone, I immediately thought of the big blue pacific ocean (it’s in my blood folks that’s what happens to a southern California native!)
I had some pretty chocolate shells that went perfectly.
Of course I had to add some sand . . . I just tinted some white sugar with gold dust.
Voilà . . . what do you think folks?
and because I love to see cakes on pretty cake stands . . . .
One more and a video!
So here is what you need
A crumb coated cake
# 12 Pastry tip, which is really just a large circle. You could make a pastry bag from parchment paper and cut the end open to create the same effect.
Small offset spatula
Frosting in whatever color you choose
and that’s it! Have fun . . . it’s easy and beautiful!
Have a great Monday! Happy cake decorating (wink)
