Spring is about bright colors and after the darkness of winter, its hard not to crave it. Freshness on all fronts from the kitchen to our wardrobe, the weather to our moods breaks through. And embracing it through the art of baking these Floral Fancies are great way to shoo off winter and welcome in the months of sun ahead.
Floral fancies needn't be perfect, in fact being imperfect makes these bright cakes just that much more gluttonous. Life is really too short to care if they don't look like they've come out of Fortnum and Maisons or La Patisserie des Reves. At least they're cheerful, homemade and full of character. Placed on a table for tea, they are well worth tucking in to. The recipe for which can be found here.
