Brushstroke Cakes Are What Sweet Dreams Are Made of

It seems like every day there is a different cake trend on Instagram. We have seen everything from mirror cakes and drip cakes to naked cakes and raindrop cakes, and now...behold the gorgeous brushstroke cakes!

What is a Brushstroke Cake?

Brushstroke cakes are beautiful cakes decorated to look like they are covered in colorful brush strokes. The ''strokes'' are made from melted chocolate that hardens in a brush stroke shape. 

The brush strokes may be made in different colors, sizes, and can be jazzed up with extras like edible gold paint.
