Chocolate Ombré

Ombré is all the rage right now from fashion to hair you’ll find it everywhere. This past weekend was cold and damp; ideal weather for experimenting in the kitchen. I made a devils food cake, frosted it in a crumb coat and used a round tip to pipe on ombré teardrops. I couldn’t of been happier with the results and the recipient of the cake even thought it came from a bakery.
Step 1: Hold your pipping bag with a rounded tip at a 90 degree angle. Give pressure to create a circle, be sure to continue to hold the tip right into the frosting.
 Step 2: Pull straight down and create a teardrop shape.
 I did two rows of each shade and then dots around the bottom of the cake to complete the look.
