Check out the DIY Industrial Wedding Cake Design Idea Video below:

What You Need:
  • A Cake
  • A Piping Bag or a Ziplock-type Bag with the corner cut off
  • Buttercream Frosting Varying in Colour
  • Icing Smoother which you can find here
  • A Cake Topper (optional)
Step 1: Put Some Spots/Stripes on The Cake in Your Desired Colour-Range

The first step is to add some spots and/or stripes of the first colour of buttercream icing that you desire onto your already crumb-coated or fully-coated wedding cake.

Step 2: Take The Icing Smoother and Turn The Cake To Smoothen and “Swipe” The Spots/Stripes

Use your Icing Smoother to turn the cake in order to smoothen the spots/stripes that you added to the cake in Step 1.

PS. You can use your microwave’s turntable as a turntable if you do not have one, it won’t be as smooth, but it’ll work.

Step 3: Repeat Step 1 & Step 2

If you would like more than one colour icing on your cake, you can repeat Step 1 & Step 2 listed above.

Step 4: Add a Cake Topper (optional)

If you are going to use a cake topper, you can add it to your amazing wedding cake now.
