DIY Buttercream Watercolor & Geode Cake

As much as we all love the beautifully smooth appearance of rolled fondant, buttercream is arguably more delicious. This technique uses buttercream in various hues to achieve a dreamy watercolor effect. For a large cake, you’ll need 3 cups of vanilla buttercream fondant, food colors in your favorite hues, an offset spatula, and a bench scraper or other frosting smoothing tool. Frosting smoothers can be found at most cake supply shops or in the baking aisle at your local crafts store.
