My cousin’s wife celebrated her birthday this week, so I made her a cake! She wanted something that was a surprise, and I really wanted to experiment more with meringues and colour so I made this cake!
It’s four layers of cake – 2 chocolate and 2 vanilla with buttercream in-between the layers. Around the outside I coated it with more buttercream, and then melted yellow candy melts over a double boiler and poured them on top to give it that “melting effect”. This was my first time doing that, and it wasn’t as hard as I thought however it hardened SO fast. I started out going really slow, and then in a matter of a minute it was rock hard. So for anyone looking to do this, I recommend you work fast!
I then made my meringues and placed them all on top. The recipe to the meringues can be found in my green ombre cake post 🙂 Super easy to make, and really tasty!
I hope you guys enjoy this, and let me know if any of you have done the melting candy melt effect before! I’d love to know!
Have a great week!
this is such a beautiful cake. Did you paint the inside of the icing bag to get that effect with the merignues?? I love this.
Yes exactly! Painted stripes inside the bag and then fillied it with meringues and piped away!
