A Flower Garden Cake

This could have been a Welcome Spring cake, or an Easter cake, but at our house it was a birthday cake for a four year old girl! She loved it.

It was a chocolate cake underneath, with a buttercream filling. Pretty standard stuff. Melody helped me make the 4 bugs on the cake and we had great fun doing it! Fondant and gum paste are just as much fun as play dough.

This is just a closer look at the details. The smiles on the bugs are an exact match of my pinky fingernail!

Happy Easter!

Hello there,
 Happy Easter to you and yours. I'm serving up a simple baked cheesecake with peaches on top for our Easter dessert. I made the "Happy Easter" piping from Royal icing and let it dry and placed it on the cooled cake. My children created these Ukranian Easter Eggs (Pysanky) yesterday.
Enjoy the holiday!
Happy Easter, Love Helen
