We’re sharing a deliciously easy way to create a marble drip cake! Drip cakes can be so intimidating to make, but to be honest, they’re actually a fairly simple way to frost a cake! As long as you’re comfortable using fondant to cover the cake, the frosting part is easy peasy! Fondant isn’t difficult either, it just takes some strength and time to roll it out! We used a simple icing recipe and added a little corn syrup to keep some of the shine.
Knead and roll out the fondant to about 1/4 inch thick. Then place it over a lightly frosted cake. The reason you frost the cake is so the fondant will stick to it and hold. Frost all the way down the sides, top, etc.
Place the fondant on top and then smooth it out to remove any bumps, doesn’t have to be perfect!
Place a rack on a rimmed cookie sheet and place the cake on top. This way the frosting will fall beneath.
Make the frosting (recipe below) and add in drops of desired food coloring. Don’t stir it, it will marble as you pour. Since we love blue so much, we did different shades of it to create our marble effect.
In about 30 minutes, your marble drip cake will harden and keep its shape!
