Painted Buttercream Cake

 A few years ago the style of painted buttercream became popular and kind of trendy. I thought I would try it myself today.

So, I mixed up a batch of vegan American buttercream and colored them purple, turquoise, pink and green.

And I frosted a cake dummy with white.
Painted buttercream comes from actually, literally painting the buttercream onto the cake using paintbrushes. It is harder to paint with than actual paint or food coloring because typically you only have to leave behind the pigment from the paint, but the majority of the paint itself gets brushed off. When painting with buttercream, you have to leave a three-dimensional amount of buttercream behind to leave behind pigment, so it is more like sculpting than painting.
Because of this, the images you make are more impressionistic than realistic. Just embrace your inner Monet.
And I painted on flowers onto a vine.
But honestly, I think it turned out cute. I mean, who doesn't love flowers?
