Palette Knife frosted painted cake



Hello friends. I hope you had a nice weekend. We’ve had a busy weekend trying to tackle an upcoming project which I hope to be able to share with you soon.
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you the tutorial for the palette knife painted cake.  If you follow me on INSTAGRAM, then you might have seen my instastory when I first had this crazy idea of painting my faux cake with frosting.
At the time I wasn’t sure, but after seeing it in photos, I think it’s so pretty.



I simply got some premade frosting and dyed it with various colors.  palettepaintedcakecraftberrybush-3

I followed THIS process



I brushed some green on the sides to resemble grass… palettepaintedcakecraftberrybush-12 palettepaintedcakecraftberrybush-13 palettepaintedcakecraftberrybush-14 palettepaintedcakecraftberrybush-15

Cool right?

I stacked them on top of each other for fun and added a fresh rose to top it off.

I guess anything can be a canvas when you’re creating :)

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Wishing you a beautiful week ahead .

much love,

    This is SO pretty, Lucy! I must try this idea. I paint (strictly a hobby painter) and am trying to get the courage to try painting with a palette knife. Maybe trying it out first on a cake would be a great idea! If I goof up, the cake will still taste great – lol!

    Looks lovely! I’ll try this sometime.
    PS The link for the process you followed took me to your home page.

    A palette knife is likewise easier to easy than a brush and it makes it possible to lay one slab of shade over another wet color without blending the two. This could be hard to accomplish with a brush.
