Sarah’s Princess Ombre Cake

I researched making her an Ombre cake for weeks. I was nervous about making the cake but in the end I was pretty pleased with how it came out!

Now we used four different colors instead of the colors being dark on bottom to lightest Sarah wanted them to be all colors! After you make your batter, divide it evenly. I  did four layers in a 9 inch cake  pan.

Always add a tiny bit of food coloring, you can add more if you need to!
I baked each layer separately, and let them completely cool before wrapping them and cooling them more in the fridge for a few hours.
I wanted to make the cake filling something fruity and since Sarah LOVES Strawberries I found the yummiest recipe.

Strawberry Cheesecake Mousse Pie

  • 1 block cream cheese (8 ounces) at room temperature
  • 1 box strawberry jello, divided
  • 2/3 cup plus 2 TBSP sugar, divided
  • 5 LARGE strawberries
  • 4 – 8 ounces Cool Whip, depending on taste and consistency you like

Start by slicing 5 strawberries in a bowl and sprinkle 2 TBSP sugar and 1 tsp strawberry jello powder over top. Stir to coat. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, cream together cream cheese, 1 TBSP strawberry jello, 2/3 cup sugar. Beat until fluffy.
With a fork, mash the five strawberries that were macerating. Pour into cream cheese mixture. Beat with mixer until well combined. Gently fold in Cool Whip.

The technique I did for the cake is called petal Cake I found on Pinterest. My tip was too small but it worked anyways. Next time I’ll use a bigger tip for the cake.
This cake was fun, and I can’t wait to make another one for Samantha’s birthday! It did take me all day to do this cake, so I recommend baking all the layers one day, then layering the cake the next day. Give it a few hours to sit in the fridge and then frost it.
