Strawberry cream cheese frosting are the magic words here. I don't even care if there is any cake under there. I'll be happy with a giant lump of strawberry cream cheese frosting.
Let's play sleuths: What's the connection here? Sure sure, you may say it's someone's 20th birthday and they love owls but that's too easy. There must be a deeper meaning. Is there a secret society of owls? Is there a code to which side they wear their flowers on? Is 20 a mystical number?
As an American, I'm not super familiar with the traditional high tea ritual. Once for a bachelorette party I had tea at the Bellagio with a bunch of fancy ladies. We had champagne and lots of tiny delicious foods. This cake would have been a gaudy yet not unwelcome addition.
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?
I wish cupcakes stayed fresh longer so I could make a box like this last about two weeks and eat just a half a cupcake per day. As it is, I have to eat two at a time or they'll go stale. I think I'll start with the carrot and then lavender. Oh the choices!!!
