Thank You Cake

Good friends are worth their weight in gold.  You know the kind that volunteer to help you with stuff before you even ask.  I made this cake for one such friend.
The flowers were simple cut outs in two shades of purple.

After searching high and low in my kitchen I found the perfect formers for my flowers.  For the large cut outs I used some big mixing spoons.  For the little cut outs I used a candy mold.  I let these sit and dry so they would keep their shape.

On the sides of the cake I piped some vines and stuck the flowers on with a little frosting.

Can you tell that I'm ready for spring?  This is definitely a spring cake.  This design could be used for many different occasions.  It just happened to be my version of a thank you note.

Thanks, Amanda, for your help.  I couldn't have done it without you.
