Tender, sweet and moist Vanilla Funfetti Cake layered with a slightly tangy Cream Cheese Frosting makes for a cake that’s perfect for any kid-at-heart. Plus, this gorgeous ombré frosting technique adds a fun, colorful touch that will definitely wow a crowd.
*The original recipe calls for three 8″ x 2″ round cake pans, but I used 8 1/2″ by 1 1/2″ pans. Three 9″ pans should also work as well, just yielding slightly thinner layers.
**At this point, if you plan to use three different shades of the same color for your ombré design, you can color all of the frosting the lightest shade before filling between layers and crumb-coating. Otherwise, leave the frosting white for now.
For a helpful visual, I highly recommend Sweetapolita’s video tutorial for the ombré frosting technique.
