Welcome Spring with the cake of your choice decorated with these pretty colorful flowers! It's easy to do and your kids will have fun helping you make the flowers and leaves.
This would also be great for a wedding shower or baby shower.
Green food coloring
1.Place coconut in a ziplock bag; add a few drops of food coloring. Seal bag; mix until coconut is tinted. Pat coconut on sides of cake and sprinkle on top.
2.Make flowers: Dust a counter top with sugar (to prevent sticking), then use a small rolling pin to flatten spice drops one at a time. Use small cookie cutters to cut out flower shapes. Pipe a drop of frosting in the center of each flower and attach a mini M&M.
3. Make leaves: Cut rolled-out green spice drops into teardrop shapes, score veins down centers with a paring knife and pinch one end of each to create leaf shape.
4.For stems, tint frosting green, put into ziplock bag, snip off a corner and pipe lines
