Ombre Ruffle Cake – Buttercream Frosting

Happy Sunday – I thought I’d share one of my favorites with you today!

I made a cake for a little ones 1st birthday & the mom gave me free range to do whatever I wished.

I decided to do a chocolate ombre cake and I have to honest, it’s not the easiest for me BUT I love the way it looks.

I separate the frosting into three bowls, or however many colors you are wanting. For the brown, I used pure cocoa.

Start with the darkest, if that is what you are putting on the bottom, add several tablespoons of cocoa & lessen the amount of cocoa per bowl to lighten the color. I want them to be noticeably different but not too drastic. If you like to frost from the top down, it may be easier to have the lighter color on top (as shown) and darken the frosting as you go.

The tip I used was a Wilton #104 or #125 for larger ruffles.
