This sweet confection was made for a wonderful lady's tea party. Lady "S" LOVES red and yellow flowers and asked that the cake incorporate those. She also wanted a design that would easily fit into a garden theme.....hence the terracotta flower pot! I love terracotta pots full of beautiful blooms in the spring and all through the summer and thought this would add a lovely touch. After the flowers were placed, I thought it needed a few whimsical touches. This led me to add the sweet little fondant bumble bee and decoratively painted cake stand. It was a joy to make this cute little cake and I hope it brings a smile to all the guests at the tea party!
I love spring anywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden. ~Ruth Stout
