[ Watermelon 🍉 Gradient ] A summertime spin on a buttercream gradient technique. I used various sized "quick icing" and "basket weave" piping tips to apply the buttercream and small teardrop cutter from the classic @wiltoncakes flower cutter set for the fondant "seeds". Happy Monday!💛 #insight #watermelon #buttercream #gradient #manicmonday
