Two-Tier Blue Ombre Wedding Cake

A Watercolor Wedding Cake Inspired by the Ocean

This simple, two-tier wedding cake is a perfect complement to a wedding by the sea. Baker Faye Cahill of Faye Cahill Cake Design in Sydney, Australia, was inspired by the "coastal" style of interior design: "minimal spaces with a light, airy feel, and textures such as limewashes, natural fabrics, and rope and twine," Faye says. The tiers were covered in fondant icing and then painted with food coloring to create a subtle watercolor effect. The finished wedding cake was topped with summery hydrangeas and foliage fashioned from gumpaste.
