Future files: Hydrangea cakes
t must be a sign that I am ready for spring. (Not just ready, but Ready. Maybe even READY.) When I saw these cupcakes posted to Facebook by iambaker, my little ready-for-spring heart went pitter pat.
I have always been a huge hydrangea fan, and especially of the periwinkle variety that both of these bakers pulled off so wonderfully--though I do love the pink/periwinkle combo on the cake. iambaker linked over to Glorious Treats as evidence of her not having "recreated the wheel," but I am oh-so-glad she had the inspiration. (And be sure to check out iambaker's grandma's hydrangea watercolor she featured as additional inspiration. Quite lovely.)
I hope these dear cakes bring a little spring--dare I say summer?--to whatever little corner of the world you're in this morning. We're currently still quite chilly and overcast, so I might just sit and stare at these cakes a little longer, sipping my coffee, waiting for the phone to ring with baby/wedding news... (you know who you are).
