Spring seems to unfold its melodious song one note at a time. Starting with the early daffodils, the bold yellow colors stand out against the brown, barren landscape, followed closely by vibrant pinks, purples, and reds.

This cake is adorned with pink raspberry buttercream frosting between the layers only, thus imitating the barren landscape with the early blooming of spring. It can be decorated with spring colors by using colorful fruit, cookies or edible flowers. While this is a simple cake to make, the decorations can sing spring, thus bringing it to life for a special celebration.
