Katia Ombres Take The Cake

Say farewell to the sombre shades of winter and get acquainted with Spring’s current ‘ombre’ hues.  Dipped, dyed, and dripping with colour graduating from light to dark tones, just like an oversized paint strip.  Ombre-essence is creating quite a buzz in fashion and home decor, showing up in everything from shower curtains, nail polish, celebrity locks, to flowing frocks.  The trend that reportedly started it all………. wedding cakes, thats right, those tall tiers of rolled fondant and buttery whipped frosting are now enhanced artistically with monochromatic colouring and in high demand for brides-to-be.
