Happy Birthday, Nate!
Joan and I decided to surprise Nate Dogg with a purple ombre cake for his birthday earlier this month. He is an alumni at UW and a huge fan of the Huskies! It was only fitting to frost this cake in shades of purple...right!?
I originally found the idea for this cake from Glory of Glorious Treats. She did the cake in shades of pink and it was absolutely beautiful. I couldn't wait to try and recreate it. Joan and I split the project as it is time consuming and should be done in 2 days so you don't spend all day in the kitchen. On day one she made the cake layers and on day two she made the frosting in variations of purple. I then took over the project and assembled the cake layers and piped the frosting.
