One of my favorite things to do is to make a pretty cake. I love the art of baking, and I love the art of decorating! A simple yet showy cake that wows the crowd is an ombre layered cake. This cake is fun because from the outside it appears to be plain Jane. When it is cut, you have a surprise! This is a great cake for Valentine's Day, whether you take it to work, your child's class party or just bake one for your sweetheart, it is sure to please!
For this cake, I choose my favorite cake recipe, making one and a half batches (for a larger layer cake). You will make your recipe of choice as usual, scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl to ensure a smooth mixture.
