ombre rose cake...

chocolate cake, layered with strawberry ganache, frosted with strawberry and yogurt ganache...


Traditionally, an ombre cake is a white cake with white frosting that has been dyed to create an ombre effect (color from dark to light). For this cake, instead of white cake and buttercream frosting. I made chocolate cake, layered and frosted with chocolate ganache.

Believe it or not I was intimidated by making cakes from scratch. But I've learned that making a cake can be fun and simple when I follow these basic steps.
- Plan ahead what kind of cake I want to make.
- Know how to decorate it.
- Study the recipe and ingredient.
- Make sure I have all ingredients I need.
- Be calm and make it happen. :)

There are so many video tutorials out there on making the rose cake with a 1M tip, and they are all varying degrees of sloppy. I would LOVE to see a video of your technique.
