Kate's cake

I love when I have an idea in my head - and it actually translates onto paper...or cake, as it were. I decided I wanted to recreate Leah's rainbow cake only in a single-color ombre format for Kate's birthday this year. And it worked! Kate chose purple (though I'm pretty sure she's color blind, so who really knows what she was hoping for) and we ran with it. 

Three levels of ombre on the outside. 

Four on the inside. 

It wasn't flawless, but I was pretty happy with the result. 

I let Kate help me with the crumb coat. And then I let her eat frosting for breakfast. It is her birthday, after all.
