You know, Mondays might not be so bad if it was a day that everyone ate cake. Instead of the old ‘TGIF’ folks might get to the office at the start of the work day on Monday and high five over a hearty “TGICD!” It wouldn’t matter when or where but you would need to get your daily dose of cake somewhere in there.  Here are a few (okay more than a few – we got carried away) wedding cakes that we swooned and gushed over. How do these amazing bakers do it?

Look closely – those are gilded girl scout cookies – Yes – that just happened.

Warning: An internet search of cakes will leave you craving cake – no matter how full you already are. Do not attempt this search unless you have a nearby bakery to appease the instant cravings you will ultimately have.  You have been warned!

DIY: Ombre Layer Cake

We asked ourselves-How can we take the notion of these fun rainbow layer cakes we’ve been seeing and make it a little sweeter and more wedding appropriate?  Well, we decided to make a six layer cake and dye each layer a different shade of pink so that when stacked they would create an ombre type look. We are no baker but thought we could handle this task.

First we purchased a simple white cake mix, three cans of white icing, rose Wilton food coloring and the additional ingredients to add to the cake mix.  We made our cake batter and evenly distributed the batter into six bowls.

Next we carefully dyed each layer a shade of pink. We then arranged the bowls from lightest to darkest and baked each layer individually in that order.  After the layers cooled we iced and stacked them on top of each other.  After all the layers were assembled we iced the outside of the cake.

We put our cake in a carrier and placed it in the fridge over night.  This helped the cake to set and kept it super moist.  Then came the fun part – having your cake and eating it too!

Voila! After you cut into your cake all your hard work will have paid off!  What a fun cake for a bachelorette party, shower or bridal luncheon! Bon Appetit!
