I recently received an order to make a 60th birthday cake for a friends mother. She said that her mother loved daffodils and I ran with it. I thought doing something simple yet elegant would be perfect for such an event. The cake is carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, covered with fondant. The daffodils are a mixture of fondant and gum paste. They were a ton of fun, and actually pretty easy to make. I am excited to work on making all kinds of flowers in the near future.
