Pastel Layered Cake

Last weekend I brought one of my favorite Spring trends, pastels, into the kitchen. I’d seen (and drooled over) a handful of ombre layered cakes, but wasn’t sure if I could master the gradual transition of colors from light to dark, so I settled on a pastel colored cake instead. I used a basic white cake mix with simple white frosting, and achieved the light colors by adding one drop of food coloring at a time and mixing it into the batter to avoid going too dark. The results were exactly as I had hoped – moist pastel cake layered between creamy white frosting.

      Oh good, I’m so glad!!! Let me know how it turns out! Just be sure to add the food color gradually because you can go from too light to too dark with just a couple of drops ;)
