Clothing and hairstyle trends don’t typically make the jump to the culinary realm. And that’s for the best because how would you even put fringe on a sandwich? But for those who want their food styling to be more, well, stylish, there’s ombré. Ombré lends a bit of flair to otherwise standard desserts, and the result is a striking presentation that’s perfect when you’re expecting a crowd.
