PANSY CAKE

The Pansy's and Johny Jump Ups on this cake are from my garden.  I grow them every year free of pesticides so I can put them on my cakes and desserts.  It has been very cold recently at night and I have worried that my precious flowers may freeze.  As you can see they are doing quite well thanks to the sun that comes out during the day in the beautiful southern California desert.

The flavor of this cake was lemon, with lemon curd, lemon buttercream and lemon mousse.  One of my favorites.

I've been waiting for your blog updates! :D Been a long time since you posted and i've been waiting to see your latest creations!

Soo pretty! The cake and the flowers! I always admire people with their own garden as i've always lived in a small apartment.

How fantastic this cake looks and sounds! This cold weather is getting a bit old. I don't ever remember this many freezing nights in northern California.

So beautiful, as always! As Shakespeare, or rather Ophelia, said "..pansies, they're for thought." And I'll bet there were a lot of lovely thoughts about this creation!
