Spring Flowers Basketweave Lemon Cake
This cake was my final project for my 2nd level of Wilton cake classes, Flowers and Cake Design. For variety, I made a lemon cake filled and iced with homemade buttercream. I used previously made royal icing flowers that I had learned throughout my classes and practiced at home to decorate my cake, including roses, apple blossoms, primroses, daffodils, crysanthemums, violets, and rosebuds, (and some buttercream roses for my mom) along with piped leaves. I also used a basketweave border I learned that day, and a shell border learned in Decorating Basics to bring my cake to completion.
