How do we feel about a rustic approach to icing, y’all?
Personally, I like it. Don’t get me wrong. A perfectly coiffed cake is sigh-inducing for sure. Still, there’s something so charming about swishy swirls in icing – or should I say frosting? – don’t you think? Like, I could totally have made this (or at least I can more easily imagine that I made this, versus a towering statue of perfectly fondanted cakery art.)
ANYWAY – it’s blue. It’s ombre. It’s got two snazzy double-height layers. So I was totally gonna feature it. I love the almost-periwinkle hue, and I love that the swooshes go in different directions. This is a lovely cake. I’m thinking I need one of these for my next birthday for sure.
