22 Watercolor Cakes *Almost* Too Pretty to Eat
No matter if they’re hanging on your walls or acting as your wedding day decor, watercolors are where it’s at. And it was only a matter of time before we found that watercolor cakes were a thing. All that smooth fondant was just begging to act as a canvas for some true cake artists. It will be difficult to make that first slice (yup, they’re that pretty), because what we’ve got here are 22 cakes that are truly a feast for the eyes and the tastebuds.
1. Sunrise Ombre Cake: We’ve all seen those ruffle ombre cakes, which, though beautiful, can tend to be a little too frilly for some. But using buttercream as a backdrop for a subtle sunrise painting is a style we can get on board with. (via Style Sweet CA)
5. Swallows and Roses Cake: We never knew the wallpaper from our grandma’s bathroom could look so chic. Painted on a cake with lovely swallow detailing, this classical floral design gets a major update. (via Emily Hankins)
11. Waterlilies Cake: We’re pretty sure Monet would approve of you eating this cake while checking our his water lilies at the Musee de l’Orangerie. The security guards, on the other hand, might not be as accepting… until you offer them a piece of cake. (via Colin Cowie Weddings)
13. Easter Rabbit Cake: We never said watercolor was reserved for wedding cakes. This sweet gateau with a critter topper is perfect for any holiday or special occasion. Also: Ombre. (via The Pretty Blog)
