Birthday "Flowers"

Betty, one of our closest friends here, had a birthday a couple weeks ago and it was the perfect occasion to try out a cake I saw on The Pioneer Woman

The cake looks intense, but it's the simplest thing EVER!

Crumb coat a double layer cake in the same color of icing you want to make the flowers, and then just start swirling away!

My next cake would hopefully look better, with one under my belt (literally, HA!)... but the trick is to keep the icing flowing and to just add additional swirls, in the same direction as the flowers, where needed.

Super easy, and pretty too!

A good combo in my books! :)
