As my entry into the Cake Contest, I decided to document the cake that I made for a family get-together in early spring.

Step 1: Assemble your cake.

Since I use my own recipes (which I prefer not to share since they take a lot of work to perfect), this instructable will just follow the decoration process.

Here you can see that I am using 4, 9" round cakes, 2 chocolate and 2 white for alternating colours. I'm also using a batch of lemon buttercream frosting, and a tub of Betty Crocker frosting for decorating (it's cheating, but I'm not exactly getting paid for this cake).

This looks really great! I'll have to make one! +1 rating +1 vote
Edible flowers, either natural or made of marzipan/gumpaste would be the next step in this cake. In this case I was really pressed for time (and making it for free) so investing the hours needed to make the flowers wasn't practical. There wasn't much left of this cake once everyone had finished, I think the lemon butter cream frosting kept them coming back.
Yum! That looks really awesome, with a lot of work put into it. +1 rating. +1 vote.
Very nice, I also like the idea of edible flowers
Gorgeous!<br/>I agree with Eric95 - a basket of fully edible flowers would be perfect. I believe roses, nasturtiums, and pansies are all edible; more suggestions <a rel="nofollow" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edible_Flowers">here</a>. <br/>(I don't see daffodils on any of the lists, but daisies do show up.)<br/>
YUM! Looks really tasty. Just a tip: You could use marzipan flowers, that way they would also be edible! Really nice instructable. You got my vote! 1+
