One of my good friends Gab asked me if I could make her a cake for her Mom’s birthday, and she specifically wanted a turquoise ombre cake with lemon macarons, so this is what I did!

In the middle there are 4 layers of french vanilla and lemon cake with buttercream in-between the layers. On the outside I did a thin coat of buttercream and let that harden up for 10 minutes or so. I then made a second batch of buttercream and divided it into 4 different bowls. Starting with the darkest and finished with the lightest (which was the white).

I unfortunately didn’t have a turquoise food colouring so I started with a blue and added a bit of green. There is more blue in turquoise, so for every 2 blues there’s 1 green. Be careful when you’re going lighter… you don’t want too much of the blue or the green!

On the top I placed my lemon macarons and ta-da! There you have it.

Hope everyone had a lovely Valentine’s day yesterday.

Talk to you soon!
