Cake is just one of those things that I’m good at. Good at eating, that is. I’ve never met a cake I didn’t like and I’m pretty sure that if that hasn’t happened by now, it never will. This DIY Watercolor Ombre Mosaic Cake is colorful and 100% edible, friends. Let’s eat, shall we?
To make your own you’ll need:
- Wilton Sugar Sheet
- food coloring
- dish or bowl filled with rubbing alcohol
- cutting mat & rotary cutter (not pictured)
Mix a little food coloring into the dish. I wanted a blue-green hue, so I used a 2:1 ratio.
Dip the paintbrush in the food coloring and then into the rubbing alcohol to dilute it. Paint the sugar sheet as you see fit.
Start at the top of the sheet by coloring the lightest color at the top and darkening the hue as you reach the bottom. Wait for the sheet to dry to a slightly damp state. It’s quick. The alcohol will evaporate and you won’t smell or taste it!
Once the sheet is slightly damp, use your rotary cutter and mat to cut little tiles.
Frost a cake. Peel the protective backing away from each tile and stick ’em right
where the sun don’t shine into that frosting with the lightest ones at the top.
It’s almost too pretty to eat. I’ve never said the words, “it’s too pretty to eat”. There’s always an “almost” in there. And for good reason.
Now go and cake it up. And celebrate the fact that tax season is behind us.
