How to Make an Ombre Rosette Cake


When I did Madi's Birthday Party, I attempted an Ombre Rosette Cake.  I was very nervous as to how it would turn out and it was sooo easy and fun!!  I wanted to share with you how I made hers...


I first baked my cakes.  I made hers in a 6 in. pan.  I followed an easy and yummy recipe I found here... http://www.wwlp.com/dpp/mass_appeal/taste/baking-and-decorating-a-cake-from-scratch


I made three different colors of pink frosting.  I made my bottom row the darkest and then lighter for the second row and then the lightest for the top row.  

I next took the darkest frosting and frosted a dirty or crumb frosting layer.


I used the next lightest color frosting and did a crumb frosting on the second layer...


and for the top layer, used the lightest frosting...



I purchased a 1M Wilton Star tip. 
{Love to make rosettes with this!}

I started with the bottom layer and darkest frosting.  I started the star in the middle of where I wanted the rosette to go and pushed out a small amount of frosting...



 Next, I started to circle around the star to the left..

I kept going around the circle...

continued to circle up...



and finished the circle up and stopped on a slight angle to the left...

I continued around the bottom row of the cake...
I did fill in some smaller spots with small stars where there were some empty places.


I did the same thing with the next row with the next lighter color of frosting trying my best to line up the roses with the rows...

and then again for the top row and and the top of the cake with the lightest frosting to finish it off!




I loved making this cake!  It was fun to do and so fun to look at!!
