Watercolor and Gold Leaf Cake DIY Kit


Edit 1/17: Hello, hello! Here's some news. Brit and Co pulled all of their DIY kits and have moved in a different direction with their business model. This kit is no longer available but you can find many of the supplies for purchase separately online. I'll try to answer as many questions as possible regarding procurement.

Edible gold leaf: you can find it for purchase here. It's a bit pricey but a little goes a long way.
Sea Sponges: for purchase here.
Wilton Neon Gel Food Color Set: for purchase here, the same set of colors were included in the kit.
Clear vanilla extract and fine-tipped paint brushes: found for purchase at most craft stores.
(end edit)

One of my favorite trends in the confection world right now is the beautiful aesthetic of watercolor and gold leaf together. Watercolor technique has been popping up all over the web on all kinds of sweets: cupcakes, cookies, celebration cakes, wedding cakes - you name it! You may even remember the watercolor cake I decorated earlier this year (if you haven't picked up Sweetapolita's Bakebook yet, you definitely should!).

Brit and Co. asked if I'd help them put together a Watercolor Gold Leaf Cake Kit. This kit has all the tools you need to create a beautiful watercolor cake of your own - but no need to stop at cakes! You can use it on all kinds of different sweets. I love that the kit comes with everything you need - food colors, brushes, extracts, and especially gold leaf, which can be hard to find and rather expensive at specialty shops. The best thing? You can re-use all the supplies over and over again!




I love the range of food colors we chose: turquoise, purple, pink and orange. You can use all four colors together as I have for this cake, or use two for a more subtle color palette.


Hop on over to the B+C shop for all the details and purchasing info!

    1. Hi Cindy, this reply is so woefully late. I apologize.

      Brit and Co are no longer carrying DIY kits. I have updated this blog post to include links to all the products that were in the kit, with the exception of clear vanilla extract and paint brushes. Those can be found at craft stores. Thanks for asking! So sorry this kit is no longer available!
