Pink Ombre Cake Recipe How To

ombre cake recipe
Inspired by the ombre fashion trend this pink ombre cake is super easy and will delight your friends at your next party. You can just as easily turn it into a blue ombre cake or purple ombre cake but for my liking the rose pink is the way to go.

You will need:
Three 20cm (7.87 inches) round cakes (any flavour you like) baked and completely cooled. If you want to use the perfect sponge cake recipe you will need to make one and a half times the recipe to make three cakes.
Three quantities of simple buttercream recipe
One bottle of liquid food colour (here I used rose pink)
Plate or cake stand to present your cake on.

Make your butter cream in various shades and place it into ziplock bags

    Hello Ann

    Can I frost the cake one day in advance? If so, how should I store the frosted cake until the next day?

    Hi! Just wanted to say thanks for sharing, my daughter and I made this today. We did it in rainbow though, the frosting was a bit too soft (it was because we used cheapo food coloring and added more to get the intenseness) but it looked really good and tasted great!

    Hi Anna :) Me and my Sister made this cake today and it failed, A LOT. It was surprising though, because I am a baker. I AM NOT BLAMING YOU. It was probably me that made the mistake. Do you have any suggestions on how to improve it for next time? Thanks
