Water Color Technique for Your (Wedding) Cake


  • Gel food coloring of your choice
  • Sponge or paint brush
  • Clear vodka
  • Cake covered with fondant


  • Dilute a little gel food coloring in vodka
  • With sponge or paint brush, start dabbing/brushing a little here and there
  • With a clean sponge/paint brush, soak/dab a little in vodka, stroke here and there like you would do with water color paint
  • To make cake prettier, add cake topper, edible flowers, pearls/dragees, edible gold/silver etc (mine here is with wafer paper)
  • And your cake is dressed ;-)
