Method

Mask your cake with a thin layer of buttercream/frosting and leave to set. Divide remaining frosting in 5 bowls and colour using the Colour Splash gels, Mix well.

Place nozzle(s) into piping bags, If you have one nozzle for each colour it would be much quicker and easier!

Add frostings into bags and pipe at random over cake until the whole cake is covered.

Top Tip: It is easier to pipe from the base of the cake upwards to help obtain the ‘shaggy’ look.
