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

  2. Mercedes says:

    for the cake recipe the 1.5 times for the egg white and egg yolks, the recipe calls for 7 so for the half would you use 3.5 of each or just 3?

    Thank you for letting me know.

    Also icing sugar is powdered sugar right? Just want to make sure :)

    • Mercedes says:

      when you did the recipe, for the 7 egg whites did you use 10.5 for the 1.5 times of the sponge cake? Also icing sugar is powdered sugar? Just wanted to ask because your cake came out amazing so it shows you did it correctly :)

  13. Ceilidh says:

    Your recipe was awesome. I only had a thin layer of cake so I did a spin off of yours, I used your lemon buttercream instead and had to improvise a little. Your video tutorial really helped!

  15. Raquel says:

    Hi I tried making this cake and I used your “basic buttercream frosting for cupcakes” recipe and the frosting turned out to liquidity and wouldn’t hold a shape/form. I used 2 1/2 cups powder sugar, 1/2 cup butter and a tablespoon of milk. What did I do wrong or do you have a different frosting recipe that can hold a good shape?

  16. shaynner says:

    Thank you for the inspiration! I made this cake for my daughter’s first birthday, except with the “petals” going horizontally instead of up and down.

    Attempting a shot at the Ombre Cake
    You said to use 1 1/2 the amount – just triple the dry ingredients and what about the eggs do I use more eggs ?
    The last time I forgot to use sugar.
    my cake did not turn what well at all.
