Continuing with the celebration this week, I have a fun, simple cake project for celebrating every occasion. We’re so excited to show off our new brand colors that we wanted to incorporate them into cakes! These simple gradient cakes are easier to make than you think – no tinted buttercream required!
These gradient cakes, as opposed to ombre cakes, have three different colors that blend together to create a mini rainbow. Use your favorite color combinations or choose colors that complement each other well, like this pink, orange, and yellow combo.
So what’s the key to making a gradient cake?
Edible color spray! You can purchase edible color spray in many colors, and it works just like standard spray paint but is entirely edible. Want to take it up a notch? Make the layers inside match the colors outside by dying the cake batter your desired colors with food coloring before baking.
