flowerfetti cake with a natural funfetti sponge

I was looking at pictures of funfetti cakes and I thought it would be fun to create one that is natural, so i had a think and decided to try it with cornflower petals as they are so bright I knew if I used a fatless pale sponge they would show up. Luckily my experiment worked and I’m so happy with how it turned out. I got the cornflowers from  maddocks farm organics  I just love working with edible flowers they are so beautiful.
