Messing About With Gouache And Buttercream

20 Aug

I had a bit of gouache left over from a design I was working on so, waste not want not, I grabbed some Bockingford paper that was knocking about and messed about with it, not using any source material, just brushing the paint across the paper for the sheer fun of it. It flows so well and makes great marks. Then I made a cake for one of my young relatives who got his – good – GCSE results today, a three layer lemon sponge filled and covered with lemon buttercream. I’ve no idea what it tasted like, because I rarely eat cake, but he seemed happy enough.

    I was on tenterhooks reading this; thought you were gonna mix them together! Both look hugely tasty though Rose…

      Hahahaha 😀 I think gouache would actually taste better than edible food colouring though 😀

        Too true, how we suffered eating cochineal! I was horrified as a child finding out it was squished cockroaches!
