Bringing a little sunshine to a rainy day

For this cake I used the same chocolate cake I made for the cake-ophony post. This time I cut off the tops of the 2 cakes (because they were uneven) and just did 2 layers with the evened out parts. I used pillsbury creamy vanilla frosting because I didn't have time to make my own and colored it green and yellow/orange for the design. This cake is very crumbly and moist so if you want to frost it but don't want the crumbs to show you need to do a crumb layer, refrigerate it, and then do another layer on top. I kind of like the cookies and cream look for this one. The flowers are made using Oreo cookies and I used wilton tip #352 for the petals on the flowers and #366 for the leaves. For the shell border I used what was left over from the petal frosting and used tip #21.
