Green Ombre Swirl Cake

greenombrecake_bysayitwithcake My three year old son loves celebrating all holidays even the smaller ones.  Saint Patrick’s Day is one that I never really celebrated when I was younger, but I am having a blast coming up with crafts and baking green treats to celebrate with my son.  We have shamrock stickers up on the windows, and green treats all over the house!   greenombrecake_bysayitwithcake1

 

To make this cake, I started with  my favorite white cake recipe Here.  I separated the batter into four bowls and added green food coloring to make different shades of green.  I used four six inch cake pans and baked the cakes all at the same time.  I cooled the cakes, and leveled them with my Wilton Leveler.  I got a six inch cake board and put it on my turn table.  I put a smear of frosting on the cake board and placed the darkest cake first.  You can find my buttercream frosting recipe here.  I used two batches of my buttercream frosting recipe.   I put one cup of frosting between each layer of cake, and let it set in the refrigerator for one hour.  Next I covered the cake with a crumb coat and let it set in the refrigerator for one hour.

Above is what the cake looks like after I frosted it.  I divided the frosting into three bowls and made it the color I wanted.  I frosted it starting on the bottom.  After the three colors are on, just go over it with a bench scraper to smooth it out.  Be careful not to over work it or the colors won’t blend right! I went over my frosting only two times and it wasn’t perfectly smooth, but I was happy with the result.  I also went over the top of the cake with a hot knife to smooth out the imperfections.
