Fashionably Patterned Desserts

Sprinkle Bakes' Poppy Seed Cake Pays Homage to Marimekko

— June 18, 2015 — Lifestyle
Paying homage to legendary textile brand Marimekko, baking blog Sprinkle Bakes creates a poppy seed cake to remember. The dessert features a layered look and is infused with a blend of egg, sugar, sour cream and orange ingredients.

In addition to its citrus flavors, the poppy seed cake also features salt, baking powder and buttermilk. The cake's light and tasty batter is decorated with a fabric-inspired icing. Resembling Japanese fashion brand Marimekko's floral dresses and stunning home fabrics, the frosting is accented with an oversized botanical print.

This print is made out of edible fondant that is shaped to create individual flowers and will catch the eye of guests at dinner or birthday parties. The cake's presentation makes it almost too pretty to eat and is definitely worth of an Instagram post or two.
