DIY Daisy Cake

This time of year, as we're on the cusp of springtime, I do my best to incorporate as well as create celebratory & festive blog posts for two reasons.  Reason number one, spring {next to summer} is my favorite time of year, truly, this is the most wonderful time of the year. Reason number two, I have always been glad that my birthday falls during this time. Growing up, I can remember many rainy birthdays spent celebrating inside of the garage, but I also recall visiting flower gardens as well as marveling at all of the new spring greenery sprouting in my own backyard.

That's the thing with spring, she kind of has a mind of her own, & that's why I love her so much! In response to my love for spring as well as creating more celebratory posts, I DIY-d a Daisy Cake. I actually made this for my grandma's 88th birthday which was in march. 

The concept inspired by Pinterest photos was pretty simple to execute. I used a boxed cake mix & icing in a jar. I made the daisies with icing pens. Really, as flowers went on, it got easier. Clearly, it's a very 'homemade' looking cake, but I personally like a bit of homemade whimsy. 

I do have one boxed cake hack, I substitute the eggs with egg beaters according to the measurements & it makes the cake super moist & fluffy.
