Fresh Basket of Flowers

Making a cake can be so much fun, especially when it comes to design.  Put your mind to it and you can fashion a cake to whatever shape you like.  I love fresh flowers, especially from my garden.  An inspiring thought came to me to create a basket of fresh flowers complete with a ribbon wrapped handle and a pretty bow.  The flowers were made from Royal Icing and Gum paste.  The bow and ribbon were also gum paste.  I fashioned my handle with a Rice Krispie’s recipe.  The cake, a delicious moist Pumpkin Spice Cake and an Ultimate Vanilla Buttercream Frosting completes my basket weave piped design.
