I made this pretty in pink ombre cake for my grandmother’s 80th birthday. The directions and recipe for this cake were found on one of my go to baking sites — Glorious Treats. I am always looking for beautiful ways to frost a cake and just adored the look of this cake. It was a big hit! Even my grandmother exclaimed it was the most beautiful birthday cake anyone had ever made for her birthday.

Mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In another bowl, beat eggs about 10 seconds with a mixer. Add sugar to eggs and beat for about 30 more seconds. Beat in oil, vanilla extract, lemon extract and lemon zest. With electric mix on low, add half of flour mixture and half of buttermilk. Beat until just combined. Add the remaining flour and buttermilk until fully combined.
