Ombré Princess Cake


Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend! 

This post was pre scheduled... right now I should be enjoying the fabulous birthday party for a very special little princess named Annabella!  Today she is 5. Her mom, a very good friend of ours asked if I would make her a birthday cake... I knew exactly what I was going to make. Since she planning a princess theme, I thought an ombré cake would be perfect for the occasion. For those of you that haven't heard this term, it means having colours or tones that shade into each other. 


 So what do you think? Isn't it fabulous?!? I LOVE how it turned out. SO happy, hope the birthday girl loves it as much as I do!


Very Girly! The tiara on top is the perfect keepsake for the birthday girl! 
Happy Birthday Annabella!


The cake is about 10 inches high and 7 inches wide. The top layers are butter pecan and the bottom layers  are chocolate cake. All covered with a vanilla butter cream icing and finished with fondant.  To get the ombré look I started with six equal pieces of white fondant and kept adding more pink to each layer, then gradually introducing more and more purple. 

Thanks for stopping by, I have a feeling this won't be my last ombré cake!

Have a great weekend :)
