Easy and simple. You’ll be surprised how easy it is to design this textured watercolor buttercream cake! After frosting and cooling my cake, I only spent maybe 10 minutes decorating and finishing touches.
Perfect for spring. I wanted to post this tutorial in time for Easter, but honestly it would be beautiful for any spring or summer event. Think Mother’s Day and birthdays, baby smash cake photo sessions, baby showers and weddings.

I didn’t really use food coloring. All of the buttercream I used on my cake was from my freezer stash of leftover buttercream and each one happened to be a natural color. The pink buttercream base coat is a mix of cranberry buttercream and lemon buttercream to create a blush color. The deeper purple/pink color is this blueberry buttercream. And the white is this lavender lemon buttercream. All flavors and colors are perfectly complementary to each other.

There can be two reasons. First, your base coat of buttercream is not cold enough. It is important that the base is very cool and firm so that the colors you add on top will sweep over the surface, rather than blending into the base coat. Second, you added too much buttercream on top of the base coat. For more texture, use less buttercream. For less texture and a more blended look, add more buttercream on top.
The silver plated candle holder is from a shop called Silver Celebrations London. Unfortunately they closed.

The first technique you will see me create is using my offset spatula to create a rustic finish on the side of my cake. This look is perfect for a simple wedding cake. It’s also great for anyone new to cake decorating who may not have perfected smooth edges yet. The good thing about this technique is that it doesn’t have to be perfect. The imperfections really give it a simple look.
The key to this technique is to make sure your buttercream is quite soft and smoothes easily. I used my American Buttercream recipe for all three techniques. First I put a crumb layer on my cake which I chilled in the fridge until firm. I know some people like to chill their cakes in the freezer, but for this method the cake may be too cold. You don’t want the frosting from your cake to start setting into your buttercream before you add your lines.
So I used my offset spatula, but you can also use a rounded end knife or even the end of a teaspoon.

One of the best ways to add texture to your cake is to use a texture comb. There are so many companies now selling them and they come in so many different designs. They allow you to smooth the buttercream around the edge of your cake while adding a fun design to the edge.
For this cake I used the Double Sided Edged Contour Comb from Evil Cake Genius. Just apply your buttercream roughly on top of your crumb coat and scrape it around.
A tip is to always make sure the bottom of the texture comb touches your cake board, this way when you run it around your cake, many times, the pattern will always be in the same place.
I love how swapping out your regular cake smoother for a texture comb can make your buttercream cakes so much fun. They are also very easy to use.

When it comes to adding texture to your buttercream cakes, stencils are a great choice because there are so many designs to choose from. You can also use any color buttercream to make your design unique, although I love how using the same color buttercream just adds a really subtle texture to the edge of your cake.
For this cake I used the Lexi stencil from Sweet Stamp. I love the geometric shapes it creates.
One thing to think about when using stencils is the type of finish you are trying to create. If you want your cake to look a little rustic, just try adding blobs of buttercream to your stencil. For a cleaner look, you can add the design around your cake.
On most stencils there is a small border at the bottom of the design, which means your design starts about 1cm up from the bottom of your cake. In the video you can see that I place my cake on top of 2 acrylic sheets to lift it up. You can also use a cake rolling board. You just want to make sure it’s smaller inside your buttercream cake. This way when you wrap the stencil around the border it won’t be a problem and the design will get all the way to the bottom. Watch the video to see what I mean.
