Happy St. Patrick’s Day, friends! In lieu of my normal pint with a side of whiskey neat, I decided to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day this year with green cake- that’s right folks. Green cake is the new green beer, at least when you are 33 weeks pregnant. Not only is this a green cake, it’s an ombre green cake!
I followed this recipe for the cake, adding green food coloring to the cake batter.
I added green food coloring in 3 steps. Since this is a layered cake, I cut the batter into 3 equal portions, adding a little more food coloring to each portion before pouring it into the pan. After mixing in the food coloring, I had 3 cake pans varying in degrees of greenness. While the cakes baked, I used that time to make a cake topper using dark and neon green pom poms…
I added some shaved coconut to the top for a little savory texture……and added the cake topper……and then sliced!And enjoy! To those of you not pregnant, I would venture to say this cake would be super delicious with a cold beer. But that’s just me.I hope you enjoy a happy and safe St. Patty’s Day!
