Don't you love daffodils? They are yellow and bright and cheery! They are just the thing to bring everyone out of the winter doldrums. We are experiencing a bit of spring in March this year, so I thought I would make happy Daffydil Weecakies. Yes, I know that the spelling is incorrect, but my daffydils are just that---DAFFY! These flowers would technically be classified as fantasy flowers because they are not correct in their configuration. But I like them. They make me happy, and face it, doesn't the name make you smile? Each Daffydil Weecakie is made with a tangy lemon cake truffle, dipped in white chocolate and topped with a chocolate daffydil flower. They are as wonderful to look at as they are to eat. So celebrate SPRING with Daffydil Weecakies.

March 2012...it came in like a lion, and right now, is acting like a lamb. Ah, Spring :) Well, it feels like Spring today. There are little green leaves pushing their way out of the ground in my gardens, searching for the sunlight. I am very excited to welcome warmer weather. March also brings us St. Patrick's Day, or "Greenie Day" as my mother would call it. She always made a big deal out of the day-we would oft times have green pudding, or green cake or green milk to celebrate St. Pat's Day. Oh, and I forgot to mention that we all had to wear green in some way or another or suffer getting pinched. This year I decided to make Weecakies with a green swirl to mark the occasion. These St. Patrick's Day Green Weecakies are yummy almond flavored light green cake truffles (or any flavor truffle of your choice) dipped in light green chocolate and then decorated with hand-piped darker green chocolate swirls. They make me smile because I know that green represents life and growth and warmth and light. Have a Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Isn't this a gorgeous cake? A couple of weeks ago we made this cake at Carrie's Cakes (carriescakes.com) for a wonderful bride and groom. It was fun to do, but very time consuming because every sugar frill was hand-rolled to tissue-paper thinness, then gathered onto the cake tiers in garlands.
The wedding photographer (melissakelseyphotography.com) did a wonderful job in capturing the romance of the evening. We couldn't have asked for a better setting to showcase our creation. Thank you to Melissa Kelsey Photography for making us look so good, and congratulations to the happy bride and groom.
