Crocus Cake

Hello! It's cake time!  

Yesterday was my daughter's birthday and so my other daughter and I were playing in the kitchen together.  We made a chocolate wacky cake, covered in marshmallow fondant icing.  Then my daughter made some chocolate butterflies and arranged the fresh crocus flowers we picked from near our home.  

I love how the marbled fondant turned out.  The pictures don't show the orange as much, but it was a nice pastel blend.  

It's so nice to make something with attention to the details, and to make it look pretty.  

Now the crocus are all in vases or a rose bowl to be enjoyed, and the cake...well, it no longer looks like this.  We'll be finishing it up today. Yum! 

Thanks for dropping by today.  I'd love to know if you use fondant icing or if you prefer buttercream. We love both in this home, and go between them.

What a pretty cake! I've never tried fondant icing, I usually prefer a "not too sweet" whipped icing.

Oh my gosh, that cake is beautiful! You ladies did an amazing job! And the flower just made it that more elegant!

Have a great day!

This cake looks too pretty to eat! I don't care for fondant icing, but it sure looks pretty on cakes! I usually just make buttercream. I have never used crocus flowers on a cake. The chocolate butterfly is a lovely touch too! It is fun to create in the kitchen :)

I only use buttercream but my youngest daughter uses fondant regularly on our cakes and the ones she sells. It's a yummy concoction if you make it from scratch - the one from Michael's doesn't taste as good.
