Ombré cakes, or cakes with color graduating from dark to light, are all the rage in cake design right now. The style is classic, making it suitable for a variety of events for people of any age but it also is not so generic that it is available absolutely everywhere. The style can be achieved using several different decorating techniques and can be created in fondant or buttercream. The color choices are limitless, so you can appeal to any customer.
The Shades of Gray cake is perfect for an anniversary, Father’s Day, a man’s birthday or Valentine’s Day. It likely will prove an attention-grabbing cake due to the 50 Shades of Gray book trilogy that inspired the design. For the female customer, the pinkalicious rosette cake, which uses the ombré theme in both the cake layers and the decorating, is ideal for female birthdays, Mother’s Day, baby showers or even a luncheon.
