Whenever I think of spring, I think of daffodils. They’re bright, they’re fun, and they spring up once a year. They don’t cost a fortune, but they just cheer you up (I’ve got a bunch at my desk at the moment).
It’s not too difficult to work out which colours remind me of spring, ellow and leaf green. Green because of all the things in nature that are springing to life, and yellow because it is a colour symbolising joy, and optimism. When you see yellow, you cannot help but think (hope and pray) about forthcoming sunshine.
Here’s some of my cakes inspired by spring.
In terms of flavours, there are only two flavours which remind me of spring. Lemon flavour for its freshness and fragrance (which is probably why there are so many cleaning products with ‘the freshness of lemon’ in them). Also honey reminds me of spring. Translating this into cake is easy. Honey cake with Honey Buttercream and Lemon Drizzle Cake, either sandwiched with Lemon Curd or Lemon Buttercream.
