1st Birthday Ombre Rosette Cake

For Gabriella's 1st birthday, I thought it would be fun to decorate everything pink and girly. I was originally planning on making a large cupcake, but then saw a picture of an "ombre style" Rosette Cake that a friend had posted on Facebook and knew I had to make it.  After watching a few YouTube videos, I knew this was the cake I had to make!

In order to make the actual cake, I used the bottom part of a large cupcake mold similar to this one:

I used a box cake mix and baked two bottoms so the cake would be tall enough.  Once the cake finally cooled, I layered the two cakes with frosting in the middle as a "glue" and then using a serrated knife, I cut around the edges to make the cake as even as possible.

I also used store bought frosting and went to Michaels and purchased the 1M Wilton tip to make the flowers. I followed the instructions on to make the flowers.  Surprisingly, the decorating part was the easiest/fastest!
