Spring Blooms Cake #BrunchWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek.  I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of #BrunchWeek recipes.  All opinions are mine alone.

This week I have teamed up with 34 other bloggers to participate in #BrunchWeek.  We are showcasing recipes throughout the week and participating in a fantastic GIVEAWAY from our terrific sponsors.  Enter at the bottom of this post, or go to THIS LINK to read all about the giveaway!


My first contribution is this fun Spring Blooms Cake.  I love making cakes, especially for family celebrations.  This cake was served at my sister's birthday party.  Using bright colored sprinkles from Sweets & Treats made it pop with color.  One of my favorite cakes that I've created! #SweetsSquad


Ingredients:
4 layer cake, baked and leveled
buttercream frosting
sprinkles (I used Sweets & Treats: Sweet Treats sprinkle mix)
BBQ skewers
candy melts
piping bags
parchment paper

Directions:
  1. Bake and level cake.
  2. Frost between each layer and around the outside of the cake.  Pipe frosting around the bottom of the cake and add sprinkles.
  3. Add sprinkles to the top of the cake.
  4. Melt candy melts in piping bags.  
  5. Pipe the melts onto parchment paper in a flower design.  Add a large pearl sprinkle to the middle.  Let cool completely.
  6. Pipe circles onto the parchment paper, lay skewers in the middle, top with a candy flower.  Let cool completely.  
  7. Add flowers to the top of the cake.  Keep refrigerated until an hour before serving.
