Chloe Bakes: Earl Grey Ombré Birthday Cake

Jen, a fellow baker friend of mine, had a birthday in July, she asked (well told) me to bake her a cake. Of course I didn’t mind! Her favourite colour is blue, if you hadn’t guessed… And I’ve been wanting to do an ombré cake for a while so I took the opportunity. Decided on earl grey flavour because it’s a good flavour and something slightly different. This cake tastes so lovely and stays moist for a long time, if the cake manages to last that long. 

I was going to make a fondant mini to go on the top as Jen is very much a mini fan and I had managed to find icing in the colour of her car, but unfortunately due to time constraint I couldn’t. Next time definitely! 

I went to work one day with Jen while I was back in Pembrokeshire, bringing cake with us of course. We had to stop her boss from eating it all, which is my favourite cake response! 

I was very pleased with the colour, loved the look on Jen’s face when she cut into it.
