    I had this idea of making simple cake with an jackson pollock-like exterior. This is an example of a jacksin pollock painting.

    So I searched the net thinking that maybe someone who have already thought of this, there was (no surprise there). Here's his picture:

    So yeah, I was beaten. But still, I want to make a cake like this. Any ideas on what frosting he/she used? Judging from the way it splatters, it has almost the same consistency as paint. I'm guessing its a solution of water + powdered sugar + colors and flavors. I just want ti make sure that's why I came here.

    Thanks in advance! :D

    It could also be thinned, colored Royal icing.

    I'm voting chocolate for this one, also.

    another vote for melted, colored chocolate.  Much tastier than colored royal icing too.
