ombre cake for valentine’s day

Since it’s the sweetest day of the year, I thought I’d share this Ombre cake I made after seeing this beautiful one! Zan and I will be enjoying it for dessert tonight : ) I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day! XOXO


Simple directions on how to make an ombre cake…


1. Choose your favorite vanilla cake recipe to make… I like this one
2. Divide the batter into four or five bowls, depending on how many layers you want
3. Starting with the lightest color, add a drop of dye. Then continue adding more to each bowl as you go. You should end with four or five shades of pink, so pretty!!
4. Bake each layer individually and then stack together from dark to light, frosting in-between the layers.
5. Divide the frosting into three bowls, add dye to each of them, making one a little darker from the other
6. Using a large round tip and a decorating bag, start with the darkest color of frosting and work your way up, changing colors as you go. ENJOY!!

    Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m
    having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!
