Here was the inspiration
Recipe here, I used one similar but dairy free.
It said that using berries would probably work instead of coloring.... I tried raspberries -they are in season, my babes LOVES them, and they are red - so that should give me pink cake - right? I thought I'd do a 3 layer cake - keep it simple, I'm not known for my fancy cakes and I'm OK with that.
at least I managed to get the ombre. hahaha, oh my. What color is it... I dunno - but I do know it's not pink!
*This cake will be eaten at the family birthday supper and NOT brought to the party! At least it smells good so it should taste good I guess and frosting should hide that sickly color.
Guess I'll have to go buy food coloring after all.
Edit: this is the cake put together with icing
