What inspired this amazing cake?
Maggie Austin: After a long winter, spring is finally in the air here in Washington DC. On one of my recent visits to the US Botanic Garden, I spotted a hummingbird sipping nectar from an early-bloomer. This design is an ode to the riot of flowers that the season brings (as well as my feathered friend who loves them as much as I do)!
