So in addition to the daisy cupcakes, I'll also be making an apple pie spice cake since my sister-in-law is not into chocolate these days. I'd never attempted an entire cake with basketweave before, I'd learned it in culinary school but that's about it. So for my first shot at basketweave, I'm pretty happy. I need to work on the spacing a bit, but that's ok.
For the shower, The vertical lines will be lavender, and the horizontal ones will be sage, and there will be a lavender sugar daisy in the center of the top.
The cake itself is a spice cake with 2 cups of diced apples, then buttercream flavored with apple pie spice in the center and top. The buttercream around the edges is just plain vanilla buttercream.
