Pastel Swirl Mini Cake

It's been a while since I share layer cake. It's not that I've forgot my beloved cutie pie cupcakes, I still sincerely do love and adore them so much but just feeling kinda having some time to practice layer-cakes. Heck, I love mini cakes too so I spent my holiday last week baking this mini cake (and a lot of cupcakes) with a serious cake-frosting practicing, of course. Truly, I've been dying to try this pastel swirl frosting technique created by the genius and creative  Sweetapolita for awhile now, and I'm so glad that I did it! Yay!

So, what is this cake is all about? It's a 4" four-layers vanilla cake filled with chocolate and vanilla buttercream and frosted with whipped vanilla frosting. I know I know, sounds too simple and boring but I just loved how it turned out!

Albeit I don't have much time to write the recipe (and a bit behind at blogging now), I couldn't resist to share this sweetness, just in case if anyone happens to come across this post and *BAM!* —  what a brilliant idea to decorate birthday cakes! Hopefully :) I blended pale yellow, orange and pink tinted frosting for this cake just to achieve a sweet and pastel look. Umm, not bad huh?. Honestly, if you make this into 2 or 3-tiers wedding cake —  BEAUTIFUL. The technique itself is so simple, just keep practicing, practice, practice and practice! It's totally worth it in the end.

And if you are looking for some color-combinations inspiration, pack your bag now and get ready to explore the world of Pinterest —  endless fun. Here's the video tutorial from Sweetapolita. Enjoy!
