I hope you don’t mind more pink today… after I shared the Pink Ombre Ruffles Owl Cake and smash cake yesterday… because today I am super-duper busy with orders and I have to make this post short & sweet. No pun intended 😉
So far my day has been not as I expected. I just spent the last 7 hours and 40 minutes working on 40 cookies (yes, I started just after 4am). Talk about underestimating a job… I certainly did this time!! So… I’m sharing this Pink Ombre Roses Birthday Cake because I can tell you about it quickly!
I’ve said this before, but if you need a pretty and elegant and looks-way-harder-than-it-is cake… do a buttercream roses cake! It took me less than 15 minutes to decorate this one, start to finish!
It took me longer to get this lettering right on the monogram than it did to do all the roses… because ya’ll know this girl cannot master writing with buttercream. It’s my downfall! I bet I wrote out those letters and wiped them off 10 times before I decided good enough was just going to have to be good enough!
Anyway, I mentioned when I shared the yellow ombre roses cake the other day that the ombre effect wasn’t as dramatic as I would’ve liked. I felt the same way about this cake. The dark (bottom) shade of pink and the middle shade of pink were nearly identical after I got it all piped on and backed up to look at it.
Oh well. I still loved the way it turned out… I’ll just have to do better next time!
This cake was all vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream. I used my 1M tip to pipe the roses. You can scroll through more of my buttercream roses cakes here and you can see Amanda from I am Baker’s wonderful tutorial on how to pipe Buttercream Roses here.
Anywho… I’ve gotta get back to cookies. While I’ve finished my first order… I still have yet another order of cookies to do plus all of my cakes and cupcakes for the weekend! Say a prayer for me! xo
Do you have any questions about these cakes? Please leave them in the comments and I’ll do my best to answer and help out!
