Buttercream Sunflower Painted Cake | Baking Butterly Love78
If you’re look for a simple, easy flower to paint on your cake, sunflowers are the way to go! Watch the video below to see how to paint buttercream sunflowers with a palette knife. Tips for Painting Buttercream with a Palette Knife: -Paint on a cake that has already been frosted and chilled. This allows you to paint without disturbing the base layer of frosting. -Use a contrasting color as a background on your cake to make your flowers really pop. I used blue frosting to make my yellow flowers stand out -A large, flat surface like the back of a sheet tray works well for mixing your colors. -Keep a paper towel handy to clean your palette knife when switching colors. -Using a gradient of colors will give your flowers more dimension. -You can always go back and add more buttercream or fix things that didn’t turn out exactly how you wanted!
