Ruffles

I made this cake over winter break and was inspired by fall leaves. I took my piping bag and put a dollop of yellow and orange in there at the same time and came out with this effect. It has a cool ombre effect to it. I topped the cake off with yellow and gold edible glitter (my signature touch to every cake - edible glitter!). I think the 2 color icing idea would work good on cupcakes as well, just don't do contrasting colors, like blue and orange because you will get an ugly brown color! Happy decorating: )

This is such a great idea, however I can see me mixing the colours and then putting it on the cake and making it look like shit.
But oh gosh, doesn't it look pretty.
I wish I could make art out of food the way you do <3

you were mentioning how your roomy used to sexile you, mine is no stranger to that either. we had a roomy contract where she is actually allowed to sexile me before 11 at night. she's done that before. but on the first weekend of school, she brought a guy back and had sex with him in our shower while I was in bed!!! that started our real problems...she hasn't done it since, but that's the type of girl I have to live with.
