I think it depends a bit on what kind of ombre decorations you are doing on it.. are they florets? just straight smoothing? are you doing a thick later and then making smoothing lines with a spatula?

Thanks Mina! I'm just going to do straight smoothing

I would ombre the cakes first, chill them so the buttercream is hard and smear free, then stack.
