Paint Palette Cake

Paint Palette Cake

I created this Artist Palette Cake that looks like a paint pallet for my daughter's 6th birthday to go with the art/painting theme that she wanted.

I started with a quarter sheet cake and trimmed it to look like an artist's pallet, complete with grip.

Then, I frosted the birthday cake with white frosting and added drops of richly colored frosting in basic colors. To get the deep colors, I used gel or paste food coloring instead of liquid. I also used a large tip to make the colors look like they were squeezed out of a tube.

Last I used ready fondant to sculpt a paint brush to lay on top. I molded the handle around a bamboo skewer so it would hold it's shape. The paint palette cake handle was made from two colors of brown fondant to give it a wood grain look.
