If you are at all into cake decorating, or even just like looking at pretty cakes, and you have not heard of Katherine Sabbath, do yourself a favor and check out her Instagram. The girl makes some pretty amazing cakes.
She plays around with a lot of different techniques, but her signature is definitely the ganache drip. These colorful drips have taken the world by storm and become one of the top trends in today's cake world. I cannot scroll through my instagram (which is largely made up of bakers) without seeing at least a dozen drip cakes. People are obsessed with them.
Another popular cake trend this year is the buttercream watercolor technique. It is an easy way to take a simple cake to the next level. I made my first Watercolor Cake a couple of months ago - and for a first attempt it wasn't too bad. But since then, I have made quite a few watercolor cakes and really gotten the hang of it.
So today, I am going to teach you how to do both - the ganache drip and the watercolor technique! That's right - a two for one DIY deal! And on top of that, I made it into a St. Patrick's Day Cake in honor of the upcoming holiday. I just couldn't help myself! You know I love a good themed caked.
So here are some step by step pictures for those of you who don't like reading - and the more detailed written instructions are below! Have fun!
