I love the large, polka-dot type sprinkles here. They make everything feel like the most special party. If someone makes you something with oversized sprinkles, it's pretty obvious that they love you more than anyone loved you before. FACT.
I remember when Teddy Grahams first came out and I was just a wee little thing. I thought they were too good to be true and had to be a limited time deal so I convinced my mom to buy like six boxes at once just in case they stopped making them. But look! They're still here! Brb, grocery shopping.
This cake makes me think of the book "Afternoon of the Elves" by Janet Talyor Lisle which I read when I was only 11. It's reminiscent of a girl in boots that are too big who spends all her time building houses for elves out of leaves in her back yard. But now she's all grown up and getting married to an equally elvin man and they are having a simple barefoot wedding in the woods.
I'm fairly certain that we've seen cupcakes posing as every food group, every meal throughout the day, every fantastical food we could imagine. I really appreciate that this has a gummy candy egg on it but real bacon. There is no reason to fake it with the bacon. That's the real lesson here.
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?
