Ombré

Thursday, July 28, 2011

Ombré has made its way into table design, nail art and even hair color recently, but I think this confection by Cake Coquette in San Francisco is my favorite incarnation of the trend! I prefer the deepening of a single shade to multiple colors, but I think that's just the perfectionist in me-how do you take your ombré, or are you tired of the look?

  8. Lovely cake, darling! I enjoy how the colors fade from dark to light. But that's just me.

    Hope you're having a lovely day, Lena!

  27. That cake looks GORGEOUS! I love how the Ombre is gradual [which is the point, but sometimes it's very hit and miss!] It would be lovely in any color! :D

  28. I LOVE ombre on cakes but I am not sure I can get behind the hair trend.

  29. I think ombre in shades of pink is the very prettiest of all. I try to steer clear of trends but this one is far too gorgeous to pass over.

  34. This is so beautiful! It looks pretty hard to create, but what a lovely affect! I think sea blues would look absolutely stunning as well - but I'm attracted to everything sea related - or blue for that matter!
