My daughter Kristin's birthday was on Easter this year so I wanted to created a cake that was full of spring. The flowers are hand made from fondant and took me several days on and off to make. I actually baked the top piece in a terricotta flower pot that I lined with parchment paper. To make the terricotta colored fondant I used a bright red fondant and I added yellow and brown gel coloring to get the look I wanted. She was really surprised my the cake.
