How cute are these ombre rhubarb mini cakes?! Sandwiched together with fresh rhubarb compote and creamy buttercream, you're going to love them!
Isn’t everything in mini just better than the full sized version? When the lovely people over at Jamie Oliver’s Bakeware contacted me and asked me if I’d like to make some cute mini cakes using their absolutely gorgeous, baby blue cake tins, I didn’t have to think very long to say YES!!
Rhubarb for me brings back so many memories of Summer’s a child eating bowls full of sweet, stewed rhubarb. So putting it in a pretty pink cake seemed like a no brainer to me. The fresh flavour of the rhubarb is just tart enough that it compliments the frosting creating a cake that isn’t too sweet, just perfect!
With each mouthful you get a bite of cake, some creamy frosting, fresh rhubarb and tangy glaze. It’s definitely a party for the taste buds.
These cakes would be absolutely perfect for a summer party or picnic. They literally demand sunshine (which let’s face it, should have arrived by now… seriously, where’s it at?!)
The ombre effect, although optional, is so easy to create and I think really gives these mini cakes a special flare. It’s created with just a little gel food colouring and really brings the whole cake to life! I mean what more could you want than a mini pink ombre cake that’s full of fresh flavour this summer?
