This week I've really noticed the abundance of flowers in gardens and public places as I travel around, so I thought I'd focus on cakes with flowers this week.
This first one is by Blissfully Sweet Cakes from Putney near Sydney NSW. It's a first birthday cake and I love the bright colours of the flowers. Jacki Fanto the creator, says that the cake is strawberry/vanilla swirl cake. Yum!
I like the contrast of these big red roses against the animal-patterned decoration on this cake from
Lyl's Sweet Treats in Cairns in Qld.
From Ethel Fetterly Artisan Cakes is this cake with a gorgeous spray of pink and white flowers.
Finally is this white cake decorated with an incredible bunch of proteas - all edible!
This was made by Janita Phelan who runs our kids' corner at the Cakeriffic expo. No training - just worked it out herself.
Below is a picture of a real protea.
