I made an attempt at creating the sunflower that Liv Hansen does so well in her book Whimsical Bakehouse. I have to admit I've sort of been obsessed with this sunflower. I loved it when I first saw it and wanted to give it a try. I took this cake to the family reunion/ 4th of july picinic as well... What says summer better then a sunflower? Cake was red velvet with buttercream icing smoothed with the viva paper towel method.
