I feel like I'm jinxing the weather here with all my talk of "Spring is coming! Spring is coming!" but the rain stays and the cold stays and I'm beginning to think that I am bad luck. I just want to keep thinking warm thoughts.
I love the motif of kind of spiky flowers like this on baked goods. It contrasts nicely with the soft roundness of the cake itself, don't you think? I don't know much about flowers but I bet you guys do; are there real life spiky flowers like that out in the wild?
Normally I'd scream overkill at a cake this busy but there is some amazing balance going on here. A striped rainbow heart inside a striped rainbow cake? A rainbow of fondant sprinkles so perfect they must have been placed there by very patient elves? I swoon for this kind of overkill.
