Love this cake! How did you achieve the technique on the fondant? Thanks for sharing.
suzanne.o1332488 answered:
Thank you. I coloured the icing a pale pink and then watered down pink gel colour with white, then watered it down with boiled water. I used a wide watercolour brush and just built up the colour, as in a painting, adding some purple streaks too. When it had dried I painted on the sihilouettes.
