I’ve always been a fan of the shabby chic look, and it’s just everywhere in the UK in the summer!
So this is my version, biscuits of course!
The beauty of this is you can use any colours you like! And here’s how I did it:
1. Mark the sections with a food safe pen (if your green runs out half way through, use a red one!) It doesn’t have to be perfect:
2. Fill in section by section, the first one I did was the blue with wet-on-wet white dots:
3. Pink cross:
4. While still wet (be quick!) using Sugarbelle’s technique, add some flowers in a slightly darker shade and add the pink lines in between the blue sections:
5. WAIT! I cannot stress this enough! Wait for the above to dry completely (12 hours +) and then add the white. Otherwise you could end up with bleeding colours into the white.
It’s not exactly smooth and my white icing could’ve been a little thinner but its the ‘quilty’ fabric look I was going for here…honest! 😉
