Daffodil Cake

filed under: Cakes on April 27, 2012

UPDATE: Tutorial here!

So last week I saw on twitter that someone was getting ready to celebrate Daffodil Day on April 27th.

Whats this you say?  I love daffodils!!  I just knew I had to make a cake.

Well.  Come to find out that Daffodil Day is actually a Canadian thing.

As I am a resident of the United States, this technically doesn’t apply to me.

But, (and more importantly) as I am a person in the human race and love other persons and don’t want anyone to suffer no matter what their nationality, I decided that I would be silly to not celebrate!


I thought this cake might also work for mothers day.

I know I am a mom and I like flowers and I like cake and I cant be that different from other moms right?

I just made a white cake with tinted buttercream.  Then piped some stuff.  And licked my fingers.  And piped some more.

I am still in the thick of planning on what kind of treats to make for my mom for mothers day.

Since I have to travel for hours I might not bring a cake, but maybe cupcakes?  Or maybe I will make her a cake and dedicate it to her but then just eat it.

It’s the thought that counts right?


Anyway, I made a 100 daffodils trying to make this cake and around flower #99 I think I figured out how to do it.  I will have to see if I can replicate that and do a tutorial for you soon! (If you don’t want one tell me now, cause I am a lazy bones and I just want to sit around watching TV and reading the dozens of magazines I have piled up that look so good.  But ya know, I could bake too.)

    Your cake looks fab! I’m welsh and the daffodil (along with the leek) is our national emblem, we celebrate the saint of Wales (saint David) on March 31st and women wear the national costume with a daffodil and the men with a leek, so next year I will definitely make this cake!! A tutorial would be much appreciated thanks! xx

    What a beautiful cake! Daffodils are my favorite flower, so I would be ecstatic if anyone made this cake for me. I think cupcakes would also look nice, with one daffodil for the top of each cupcake.
