It's been unseasonably warm for a Canadian winter, with the last few weeks mostly above freezing.
So it feels like Spring's just around the corner (which it isn't...there is snow coming on Sunday).
I saw these beautiful cakes the other day at my favorite local patisserie, Bruleé, and they made me smile:
Don't eat the flowers though!
I also loved the chocolate ganache cake with fruit:
About an hour later I stopped at Crate & Barrel and admired their spring collection of silk flowers:
Magnolia branches, white peonies and pink dahlias at Crate & Barrel
You can see how desperate I am for spring to arrive.
