Sometimes nothing is more fun than letting your inner housewife come out once in awhile. For me, this happens every time one of my friends has a birthday. Perhaps this is due to the fact that my mother was a career woman and never baked for me, or that I secretly wanted to tackle an unexpected kitchen feat, or that I really just want to eat cake once in a damn while. I donno, but… Here goes nothin'.
- 5 eight inch pans
- 3 boxes Betty Crocker chocolate cake (eggs, oil, water)
- 3 jars vanilla frosting
- 1 pack food coloring
Divide cake batter among the 5 pans.
Next divide frosting into 5 different bowls while cake is in the oven.
Choose your cake color (I chose pink-obvi) and put 1 drop in first bowl, 2 drops in second bowl, 3 drops in third, and so forth…
Begin with first pan of cake.
Turn upside down on cake platter.
Ice with lightest shade of frosting first.
Stack second layer of cake & ice with second shade of pink frosting.
Repeat until fifth layer is stacked.
Add candles/cosmos…and voile!
Happy Ombre Caking.
