Spring Cakes

C'est le printemps! YOUPI! Je suis très contente!

The closer summer gets, the more I dream about going swimming off the dock, or running in the cool summer air. There is so much about summer I love. But the best part (other than my soon-to-be-built-home!) is having friends over. My friends are so important to me. To celebrate a new-found-friend, I made this spring-themed cake.


This is a borrowed design I suppose, coming from PetalSweet's blog. Check the original. But, mine, unlike hers, has a flat top. The birds represent the spring's arrival, and the love in the air. This is the time of renewal. I am super happy with the way this cake turned out, and so was the recipient.

If you were wondering, I actually got to post the inside of the cake FOR ONCE! There have been so many parties where I've been too busy or distracted to take pictures. It is also quite distasteful to take pictures of food when people are trying to eat. Anyway, the inside of this particular cake is a Vanilla-Spice cake with Raspberry icing filled with cherries and raspberries. It was an amazing combo! Super yummy.

Well, that's enough of the story-telling, I'm currently in the process of making one fabulous Barbie Cake. I have never made one, and it is especially difficult considering the request was NO FONDANT ON THE CAKE (DIES). Wish me luck. I'll chart my progress for next post.
