This cake is for a very special girl - my baby girl. She just turned 15. I'm not sure how that happened so quickly since I haven't gotten any older... well I don't feel any older. Claire asked for her favorite cake, chocolate cake with Oreo filling, for her birthday. She requested a cake with ombre - that's the shading from light to dark in the same color. I made this ruffled ombre cake for her, and put a pretty pink rose on top. She's a special person and a terrific daughter, and she deserved a cake as beautiful, sweet and classy as she is.
Happy Birthday to Claire, who regardless of her age, will always be my baby.
