It's a week of birthday cake baking around here, and first on the list was this pastel ombré birthday cake for a sweet little 7-year-old. My client requested that pink, purple and teal be used in the cake and the rest was left up to me. It's always fun to have a little creative leeway and try new ideas. Each of the three cake layers is tinted a different color to match the frosting.
The cake itself is a vanilla cake with a strawberry filling and a vanilla buttercream. The same cake I did for Avery's 2nd birthday last month. You can find the full recipe here.
