My friends at the Oregon Raspberry & Blackberry Commission sent me some delicious Oregon raspberry jam and I really wanted to use it to make a fun dessert. Then it dawned on me. Gradient cake.

And here it is! I’m so happy with how it turned out. All you have to do is pick up the Wilton Mini Cake Pan set“. My recipe below is adapted from their house recipe for the Ombre Cake!
