Ombre Lemon Cake

Ombre is everywhere lately and this is my spin on it.

I thought I would just try frosting a cake in an ombre style using lemon flavored butter-cream. I saw this cake over on Bake at 350's blog and thought I would try out the Lemon-Vanilla Bean Layer Cake. I was not too impressed with the cake, mine turned out very dense but the lemon curd was yummy.

Anyway I just crudely piped on the icing in the three different shades from top to bottom and then smoothed it out with a decorating comb/icing smoother, let it crust and then did the VIVA paper towel smoothing technique. I quickly made a Gerber daisy out of gum-paste to top it off.

It was not my best effort that is why there is just one shot that I am sharing because this one didn't show off too many of my mistakes. :)

When I was in Light Room exporting my picture I accidentally clicked on a preset filter and I really liked it so I am sharing it as well. It actually shows the three different shades better.
