It’s ALIIIIIVVEEEEEE!!! That’s all I could think of as I was piping this hilariously overdone buttercream-covered cake. Like the cake was going to be all like “SMELL YA LATER, LYNDS!” and shuffle off the table and open the door into the great unknown, leaving a snail trail of frosting in it’s wake. I made this wild and wonderful buttercream flower piped cake for a local art gallery’s dance-a-thon as part of a prize pack. To be totally honest, I had all of these buttercream colours already made up in fresh buttercream from the day before so it was a perfect excuse to put the extra buttercream to good cakey use. I had volunteered at my good friend Amber’s work, a seniors care facility, to present a cupcake decorating workshop for some awesome senior ladies! The women had a blast as I showed them how to pipe rosettes, buttercream grass and even a buttercream rose cupcake. Spending time with the seniors really made me miss my own grandma. Sigh. She was such a cool lady. She was a librarian, an avid reader and a great cook and baker – I just know she would’ve freaking LOVED seeing my cake book finally come to fruition!
This cake also BLEW UP on Instagram which I did not expect. IG is so weird. One moment they’re shittin’ on ya and cockblocking all of your content, then the next they’re blasting your cake pic all over everyone’s algorithm, haha. Anyway… I hope the winner of this zany cake partied as hard as this cake parties! xo Lyndsay
