HOW TO MAKE A RUFFLED OMBRE CAKE


Ruffled Cakes and Layered Ombre Cakes
are so hot right now and are all over 
Pinterest and Blogs
Did you ever wonder how they are made?
Here's a step by step "how to" that you can use
 to try out your baking skills...
 Choose your favorite vanilla cake recipe to make &
 divide the batter into four or five bowls, depending on how many layers you want

  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,
 or whatever color you choose
 Bake each layer individually
 
 Divide the frosting into three bowls, 
adding dye to each of them, 
making one a little darker from the other
 Stack together from light to dark, 
frosting in-between the layers
Start with the lightest color of frosting 
and work your way up, changing colors as you go

NOW FOR THE RUFFLES

 Use a  rose or petal tip in a back and forth motion
and work your way up and down the cake

Cover the top of the cake using the same back and forth motion starting on the outer perimeter working your way in

Good luck with your cake creation
I hope
(if you attempt to make this)
it turns out great!
                     
HAPPY BAKING
