Simple white layer cake
colored layer cake

I sort of have an obsession with making little cakes...and of course eating them. Being a graphic designer, pixel perfect perfection is engrained into our process...but I've fallen in love with the imperfect artistic nature of buttercream frosting.

This cute little 3 layer, 6 inch cake was for my mom's birthday. Had so much fun making it for her!
I left the exterior simple, covered in buttercream and then coated it in white chocolate curls. It was a simple vanilla cake...until you cut into it. Stunning 2 toned lavender cake layers were the surprise punch!
This was my first attempt with coloring the cake batter itself and I love the results!
