Watercolor decor is one of our favorite trends this season, so much so that we want to apply it to just about anything. Yes - even cake! While we love a simple white frosted cake, we also love taking things up a notch with a gorgeous design like the one below. This approach was actually the result of a happy mistake so while we're sure there are millions of more professional ways to achieve this, we like this "can't possibly mess it up" version!
