Starting with a chilled crumb coated cake; pipe rings of buttercream around the cake starting with the darkest colour at the base of the cake. We chose to create a rainbow ombre so started with the violet shade. 

2

Pipe the other colours buttercream up the side of the cake and pipe your top colour on the top of your cake as well.

Use a palette knife to smooth the top of the cake. Then using a cake scraper to smooth the sides of the cake, fill in any gaps with buttercream and continue to smooth the buttercream until you have a smooth ombre buttercream cake!
