Flowery Cakes

I spent a good part of last week in my kitchen creating springtime cakes for 4 different occasions, three birthdays and a baby shower.

For the chocolate iced cupcakes, some of my inspiration came from my very own yard where daffodils are abundant and in full bloom. I also wanted to incorporate the color orange and made orange daisies which were a nice compliment to the yellow daffodils.

The teapot cupcakes were made for Steph's She's CrafTEA! party, and the pink daisy cupcakes were ordered for a little girl's birthday tea party.The recipient of the baby shower cake loves chocolate and raspberry so I made a chocolate cake layered with raspberries and chocolate buttercream and iced in a raspberry buttercream.

And they were really too pretty to eat, but I did so anyway. (I kept a teapot, and each flower, by the way!). Yummy and gorgeous and just so special. The best ever. Thank you!

Sweetcakes, check out my blog. I posted some Disney pics that made me think of you and Steph!

Amazing! The photos of your little cupcakes make me wish even more that I'd been in town for Steph's party! Did you use fondant? Other stuff? The daffodil petals look so delicate~
