blue ombre cake

Ombre cakes have been around a for a few years now and they are still so popular!

Today… I made this ombre blue flower on top of a cake ,using only a leaf cutter.

This cake turned out to be really eye-catching and it’s surprisingly simple to make!

I zoomed in this next picture so that you can really see the 3 shades of blue.

Pretty… Right? 🙂
