This was my oops cake. I made three 6" layers and ran out of Pam so I used Crisco. The two with Crisco stuck to the pan... it wasn't pretty (Crisco, you're dead to me!).
So... I used those 3 layers as oops cake to practice with and decided to make a double layer oh-so-sweet pink ombre cake for our friend's little girl, Bella. I applied 2 crumb coats-- my first crumb coats ever!
Crumb coats are almost as brilliant as purse hangers!
Then I divided my buttercream frosting into 3 colors, with extra in the lightest pink for the top. After carefully applying rings of frosting around the cakes I used a flat sided dealibob, this Wilton Decorate Smart Icing Smoother, to spread the frosting around the cake and smooth it the best that I could.
I like the imperfect sides, actually.
I added rosettes and pearls and more pearls and some sparkly sugar and then Adam hand delivered it to Bella. That sweet face. I think it was a success!
