Blue Ombre Cake


Once upon a time a girl was pinning away...
She came across this lovely photo of a cake.
When she realized that she had a bunch of left over icing in her freezer (about to go bad),
she decided to create her own version of the beautiful cake.
Here's how it went:


A blank slate.


A light shade of turquoise to begin.


Wilton: 2D.


Icing mix 1 and 2. You can barely see the colour change here, but there is one. 


Icing mix 3, adding a bit more blue colouring to darken it up.


Icing mix 4, resulting in a finished product.


Light to dark.


Because my boyfriend is an icing hater, I took pictures of my swirly ombre masterpiece and went around with a spatula to scrape off as much icing as I could.


Sprinkles salvaged some of the cake's cuteness.

  3. I love the idea of an ombre cake!! I haven't seen a cake decorated like this before, but I like it. And I would still eat it. And that's really the point.
