Who’d have thought that with a few swipes of your spatula, you could turn a simple cake into a mini masterpiece?
Unlike using real painterly watercolours (which require a bucketload of skill and patience), creating this swishy-swashy effect with icing is a total cinch – and actually pretty tricky to get wrong.

Mmm, make way for the sugar high. And also make way for the full tutorial, which you can find right over here.
