Ombre hombres!

Posted on

I have made a few birthday cakes this year for friends. One inspired by another blogger and one by Nigella Lawson along with my Dad who happened to leave me with a six-pack of Guiness in a failed jelly shot experiment! The first cake was inspired by the Apartment 2B blog which will give you excellent decorating instructions for the pink ombre buttercream – ombre seems to be all the rage at the moment!

I used a favourite marble cake recipe from taste.com.au which has yoghurt in it to keep it moist despite the firm consistency. I was pleased with the icing effect as a first attempt and my friend was happy to have a special birthday cake for her 60th, win-win.
