Buttercream cakes - not just about the taste

Buttercream cakes are crowd winners when it comes to celebrating occasions like birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, or any other event. They not only taste amazing -- luscious cream always has guests coming for more -- but can be visually stunning too.

From our experience consulting with customers, we’ll share with you popular designs that your loved ones will enjoy.

1. Flowers​

Yume Patisserie’s signature realistic flower cake design

Different from traditional buttercream where flowers may look dull and lifeless, our technique allows for a more organic looking coloration and fuller looking flowers. Applying different piping techniques we can then create looks such as the rustic looking bouquet, or a more clean and elegant design.

2. The Painted look

Painting with buttercream is big these days. Cake artists create cakes that look like they were taken out from an art gallery with just the humble palette knife. The possibilities are endless as the cake artist changes her tools and colours on the canvas that is a delicious cake.

3. Colours that pop!

Sometimes simple designs are the most well loved ones. A simple ombre cake may be all it takes to brighten up someone’s day.
