This Valentine’s Day Red Ombre cake starts with a moist, flavorful red velvet cake, and it’s smothered in the fluffiest vanilla frosting. It’s finally topped with silver jimmies and mini-heart sugar cookies. This Valentine’s Day Red Ombre Cake is a perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
I was talking to a friend the other day, and she said something like, “I need to find an excuse to make a cake.” I told her, I never need an excuse to make a cake (or any dessert for that matter). But certain holidays inspire me a whole lot, and Valentine’s Day is one of them.
So far I’ve made these Sparkly Cupid’s Arrow Cake Pops and this Raspberry Pie with heart cut-outs. And today’s inspiration is this Valentine’s Day Red Ombre Cake.
My Valentine’s Day dessert streak isn’t quite over yet. Stay tuned this week for a few more treats before Valentine’s Day actually arrives. And if you follow me on Instagram (which you can do right here), I’ll be including some photos of my kid’s Valentine’s Day crafts 🙂
To get the full tutorial and recipe for this cake, head over to my friend, Jenny’s, blog The Melrose Family. You can find the recipe here.

This beautiful Red Ombre Cake is certainly perfect for Valentine’s Day. Looks so gorgeous, must be so yummy. Although I’d have a hard time cutting it and taking a slice for the fear of ruining such a beautiful creation.
