Victoria Sandwich Cake ***

My 9 y/o is turning 10 this week and requested a purple decorated birthday cake.  After combing through some photos online and visiting a few bakeries, I decided to bake the cake myself.  This is  the practice cake before I attempt the actual birthday cake. 

I used a vanilla sponge, raspberry preserves as filling and whipped cream.  I colored the whipped cream different shades of purple and piped ribbons around the cake.  I tried a different color for each ribbon and I like the ombre effect but for the actual cake I'll stick with just 3 shades of purple.
