Fabulous Purple Ombre Layer Cake
This simple white cake with fluffy frosting is amazing. But it is the colorful layers inside that make it stand out!
From clothing to hair color to home decor, the ombre trend is everywhere. What is ombre? It simply means a graduation of color, where you start with a dark color and end with a lighter shade of the same color. I decided to bring that fun idea to the kitchen!
For my Purple Ombre Layered Cake, I prefer to use gel food coloring, which is highly concentrated and which makes the colors vivid and intense. Gel food coloring can be found in bakery supply stores, craft stores and online. A small container lasts forever and can be used to color many, many things.
Start by making the cake batter as you normally would. Divide the batter evenly into four bowls.
