I had an idea for a small cake for my grandma's bday, that i wanted to make, 3-4 layers(torted layers) but going from lighter to dark, top to bottom. but in browns/chocolate.

How would the best way to do this be? I cant recall off the top of my head if there was brown food color. lol. didnt want to make my own. Obviously i can just use a chocolate cake, like a fudge, for the bottom.

But i wasnt sure what the best way was to go lighter. maybe one a german chocolate? Thats 2 shades so far, but beyond that i was kinda stumped.

Or like what I'd do for a color is divide a cake mix up into two shades of a color. etc. But then i wasnt sure about that.

One of those brain fart moments.

ETA: would a peanut butter cake be kinda tan/brown? wonder if i could start from there and maybe add a bit of black to shade the other color/s and do chocolate on the bottom. a choco pb cake.
