To close this week with a golden key, let me show you my buttercream rustic cake.
This imprint technique is pretty simple, you just use a fork to mess your perfectly smooth buttercream (yes… this can be harsh… LOL). You can use this technique anytime you want to achieve a wood-like texture, for example.
Although is not a cake made for a hot/humid weather (the buttercream can overreact, decide to leave the building and just melt when under heat) on a tempered climate it can easily be outside of your fridge for up to 3 days (depending on your choice of filling as well, of course).
- 6 inches x 4,5 inches cake
- Buttercream finish
- Piped roses (Tip 103)
- Piped leaves (Tip 352)
It’s all about colors!
A few days ago I have started my wafer flower experiments craving for some color. Today, I present you the pattern painted wafer cake!
Again, the flowers are quick to make, technique and some patience and everything will come together quite rapidly, the painting on the other hand…
The thing that I like most about it, though, is the depth sensation obtained with the color overlay on each roll.
Quite proud with the result!
- Wafer roled roses and wafer opened (dust painted) rose
- 8 in cake

Today is Easter and we could not pass it without a pretty cake to celebrate!
Both the basket and the cake pops are made of chocolate, as the bunny demands 😉
