I am discovering more and more ways to make buttercream as appealing and even more gorgeous than fondant covered cakes. Using fondant is sometimes necessary to achieve a certain look or concept, but there is nothing like sinking your teeth into a cake covered in buttercream.
Loving this blue ombre cake we did for a boy baby shower. Just because it’s a blue doesn’t mean it can’t be pretty! We did batman in buttercream, which could have been completely fondant covered, but instead we just used the fondant as accents to decorate Gotham City. The pink ombre cake was for a sweet 16th, and Barbie was made trendy covered in ombre pink buttercream roses.
