Blue Ombre Cake

Makes 1 large 3-layered cake

You will need:

3 x  9 inch round cake pans
3 sheets of parchment paper
1 10 inch round cake board

1 C / 250ml whole milk
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 C / 225g unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
2 C / 400g caster sugar
3 C / 360g plain / all purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
5 large egg whites
Sky blue gel food colouring

For the vanilla frosting:

3 C / 675g unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
6 C / 600g powdered / icing sugar
2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
5-6 tbsp heavy whipping cream / double cream
sky blue gel food colouring

Cake directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350F /175C.  Grease and line the cake tins or spray with baking spray and set aside.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the milk and vanilla and set aside.

3. Using a standing mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder.

5. Alternating between the milk and the dry ingredients, gradually pour both bowls into the butter mixture.  Mix on low to medium speed until thoroughly combined.

6. Using another large mixing bowl and a hand mixer, beat the eggs until stiff peaks form.  Fold into the cake batter.

7. Divide the batter evenly between three mixing bowls.

8. Leave one bowl white.  In the second bowl, mix 2 drops of sky blue gel food colouring into the batter.  In the third bowl, mix 5-6 drops of sky blue gel food colouring into the batter.

9. Pour each batter into their own cake tin.  Tap to ensure the top is level.  Bake in the oven for 23-26 minutes or until a toothpick or skewer comes out clean in the centre.

10. Allow the cakes to cool completely before removing from cake pans.

11. Place the cakes onto a cutting board then use a cake slicer to remove the domes from the cakes if necessary.


To decorate:

1. Using a standing mixer, beat all the frosting ingredients together until stiff peaks form. About 5-7 minutes.

2. Scoop about 1 cup of frosting into another bowl and mix in a few drops of sky blue gel food colouring.

3. Place the darker blue cake layer onto the cake board.  Scoop about 1 C of frosting onto the first layer and smooth out with an angled spatula or palette knife.


2. Place the lighter blue layer of cake onto the first layer of frosting.


3. Scoop another cup of frosting onto the second layer of cake and smooth evenly.


4. Place the last layer of cake onto the second layer of frosting.

5. Scoop the remaining white frosting onto the cake and cover completely.

6. Using the angled spatula, scoop some blue icing onto the white cake in random places then gently swirl to create an ombre effect.


7. Smooth the frosting evenly then carefully place the white chocolate snowflakes randomly all over the cake
