Kya’s 2nd Birthday Cake

My one and only niece (so far!) turned two on Saturday! My sister in law asked me to make the cake and even though I was a little nervous to drive 5 hours with a cake, I took the leap!

ombre birthday cake
Although it did sink a little bit on the car ride- it held up pretty good! The bottom tier is chocolate cake and the top tier is vanilla! It is completely iced with buttercream icing.

Making the purple icing was probably the hardest part of this cake! Purple is a hard color to master but I finally figured out to add some black (yes, black) to get it to be darker instead of super vibrant/bright.

The butterfly accents are from Hobby Lobby! I can’t remember what section but I found them there like a month ago and thought they were perfect!

Happy 2nd birthday Kya! Aunt Sam loves you very very much!!
