Made From Scratch's Ombre Petal Layer Cake celebrates the chromatic motif's longstanding history. While the ombre style has taken contemporary fashion lines and cosmetic tutorials by storm, the blog's curator points out that one can find references to the style from as far back as the 1950s.
This recipe is remarkably subtle. Many have opted for dramatic takes on the unraveling of color, seen in rainbow-esque strips of bright tones. Made From Scratch has approached the motif with a sense of minimalism however as the Ombre Petal Layer Cake works with beiges, light pinks and baby yellows. Together the dessert does unfurl delicately, each petal flowing into one another according to the color-coded coatings of icing.
