Ombre Rose- 1 bowl
The ombre cake is one of my most requested- its so fun in any color. But I always ended up with a lot of left over frosting tinted in various shades. So I started doing it a new way. Here is the basic “how to” for the ROSE Technique.
To get ready I do my crumb coat and refrigerate my cake until its nice and chilled.
Then I pull out ONE bowl, add some frosting and start tinting. This first color is the darkest, and it’s also how you can determine how much frosting you need for each shade. You can eyeball it or measure it exactly. Once you have gone around your cake the desired amount of times you should have used up the frosting- except for what lines the bowl. That remaining frosting will color your next shade (if you have too much in the bowl scrape a little out and eat it with a graham cracker.) Repeat the process until you have your Ombre Cake. You can always add a drop or two of tint but I found I didnt need to. A little color goes a long way!
Its so nice to not have a sink full of dishes when I am finished with these beautiful cakes!
