A few cakes...

 So fun to do cakes in the winter when I'm not worried about humidity! This one was for a friend who celebrated a milestone birthday a few weeks back. She loves flowers and is passionate about her garden. As well, she's an accomplished artist. So I thought I'd do a different sort of floral cake. Instead of classic buttercream roses or fondant flowers, I piped them from coloured chocolate and put them on a quadruple layer chocolate cake. Death by chocolate!

Another friend celebrated a not-so-milestone birthday but since we missed the big one last year, we decided to celebrate anyhow. Dane absolutely loves Cherry Blossoms so I made a cake that looked like a giant Cherry Blossom. I hear he really liked it.

Woods close up

 The first snowfall took us into the woods. Funny how this poplar is still growing but is missing half its trunk.

 Look at these teeny weeny mushrooms growing on the tree trunk. My sis said they looked like mini-pancakes.

 I love how the base of a few trees had frills of moss. So dynamic against the white snow backdrop.

Another green frilly skirt.

Love the detail of the moss. Wonder what's living in there?

 I also looked really closely at the trunk and noticed all the lichen growing there. Mini-lives on the trunk. Cool.
