This extraordinary cake is comprised of two layers: one, a cinnamon-spiced carrot-and-walnut cake; the other, a zucchini cake flavored with ground ginger. Cream-cheese icing creates a snowy landscape with marzipan vegetable plots.
Royal-icing latticework gives this grand cake a summery feel, but the year-round appeal of citrus fruit makes it right for any season. The lemons are actually tinted white chocolate, the blossoms gum paste, and the leaves are white fondant.
Poppy Seed Cake Recipe- Recipes As sweet finale for my favorite meal, this moist cake is chock full of poppy seeds. (Don't forget to soak the poppy seeds.) The cream cheese frosting adds the final touch! This is also a tasty dessert to bring to a potluck.

Rose Hip Arrangement: After the flowers have faded, jewel-hued rose hips – the fruit of a rose plant – carry the beauty of the garden into fall. Here, mixed with eucalyptus fruit and leaves in pewter vessels, they put on an ebullient show.
