This was an "almost disaster" cake. The top layer was original Ombre, until I made the mistake of not inserting enough dowels, and had the "Leaning Tower Or Pisa"! Had to scrape off the original buttercream, adjust cake level, and then redo all of the buttercream ruffles. At 1 am, I didn't really have to energy to make a new batch of buttercream, so just mixed it together, and got a pretty bright shade of pink :-) Luckily, the client had no preferences about the cake, and though it's far from perfect, it is also far from a disaster!!!!
