Everywhere I go, I see ombre — ombre nails, ombre dresses, ombre flowers, ombre tomatoes. My friends are even starting to get their hair done in ombre — which used to mean it was time to get their roots touched up, but now it’s a thing.

You either know what I’m talking about or — like my husband — you think I’m leaving off an “H”.

Just in case, Merriam Webster defines ombre as: having colors or tones that shade into each other.

Here, why don’t I just show you?

 That’s ombre.

  Isn’t it gorgeous?

 What I didn’t realize until I started looking into ombre cakes was just how many ways ombre could be incorporated into a cake.

 Sometimes literally.

The outside deserves a look, too:

There are a lot of ways to achieve ombre.

 You can take a pristine white cake and “ombre it up” with some pretty piping:

… or maybe a swirl of flowers — like this one, inspired by a Steampunk-themed invitation:

(By Sugar Song Cakes)

(See, Steampunk doesn’t have to be brown…)  

 

It seems like bakers are able to make ombre cakes out of pretty much anything:

 Pretty blue ruffles:

…big, swoopy swirls:

(By Charm City Cakes)

 

 …pink fondant tubes:

 

…teeny-tiny flowers:

(By Cake Fixation)

 

…and sunset slashes:

Sometimes, the shading is subtle:

Other ombre cakes are a little more extroverted:

(By Frosting)

 

 You certainly couldn’t accuse this cake of being shy:

 … no matter how much it blushes.

 

One thing’s for sure; ombre cakes will never fade quietly into the background.

And thank goodness for that!

 

Have a wonderful Sunday!
