Cake Flower!

Tomorrow is the retirement party for a colleague, who is a great gardener! I offered to make the cake for about 40 guests, and after much thought, I decided I'd make a large flower cake. I planned out the baking pans I'd use, figured out what I'd carry it on, made the carrot cakes with applesauce, raisins and pecans, froze the cakes until today, and today I put the lot of them together and iced them. It took me from 6 p.m.- 9:30 p.m. to ice them, and after working all day, I'm about done in! However, I thought I'd show a few pics taken over the past few days. I'll add a bit of decoration to the board once I get it to the party. :)


  1. Oh, Glo. What a phenomenal idea! I like your decorations very much - and how your friend will enjoy this cake made so thoughtfully :-)

  2. Wonderful! I'm sure that it tastes every bit as good as it looks. xx

  3. I'm always in awe of people who can make pretty cakes. This one is a beauty!

  4. Nikki ~ Thank you! It worked out well ~ I would have liked to be a bit more adventurous with the icing, making some blended colours, etc., but it was time consuming as it was! The cake was much appreciated :)

    Flighty ~ Thanks, to you, too! The guests said it tasted delicious :)

    rosezilla ~ Glad to see you dropped in and enjoyed the cake! Thanks :)
