It’s March 1, and although it’s 30 degrees in Chicago with snow in the forecast, March means I start to think spring! Even though there may not be any flowers on the ground, you can add flowers to your sweet treats any time. Check out these ideas.

1. Touch of Violet Cupcakes. Pipe a simple flower petal design around the top of a cupcake and accent the petals with Wilton Color Mist food color spray. It’s a fast and easy way to add color – pick a few different colors and make a bouquet!



2. Polka-Dotted Flower Cake. Celebrate a brand-new spring season with this buttercream-iced cake decorated with colorful flowers piped using the bead technique.



3. Buttercream Flowers: The Hydrangea. Hydrangea flowers in buttercream add impressive elegance to any cake. Watch how it’s done here:


4. Garden Shapes Cookies. Spring shapes and on-trend colors combine with a great woven texture to make these the cookies.
