Ombre Cake

It's a surprise in a cake!

Overall an ombre cake is really easy to make, but just time consuming.  Each layer of color requires its own pan. Yes, 5 pans were used to make this cake. That means I had to wash 5 different pans. I felt like I was working on a wedding cake. Okay, that was a slight exaggeration, but I hate washing cake pans

This cake was made using vanilla cake and then pink food coloring was added to each cake that was made.  You must level each cake tier so the top is as flat as the bottom and you end up with a cake that is standing not leaning or toppling over.

For frosting use the same method. Start with vanilla buttercream and then as you frost add more pink coloring as you frost. 

Don't just look at it eat a piece!
