Poppies make me happy…real or fake. So this cake, made by the talented Anne Heap at Pink Cake Box, undoubtedly makes me happy. (Side note, I also have a friend who recently named her daughter Poppy…which has thus inspired this Poppy-themed post).
Sweet and simple, this two-tiered round cake keeps it minimalistic with a smooth, white buttercream frosting and dark chocolate piping at the base. The red poppies give this cake a little pinch of modern. It’s a nice alternative to fondant flowers that can sometimes be over done.
Here is my random question for the day: do poppy seeds come from Poppy flowers?
