Gorgeous Grandma Day Cake!!

Gorgeous Grandma Day Cake
My mom and dad came for a visit this past week.  Gorgeous Grandma Day was the week before, but she asked if we could make a cake to celebrate it.  I always like a good reason to make a cake, and she was wanting to give us an excuse to make one, so she could watch.  
 My dad  bought a carrot cake and a canned cream cheese frosting with extra cream cheese to add to make it their favorite way.  This is a hard frosting to frost a cake with, so we went with the 'swirled' look.  
Primroses, Daisies, Pansies, Violets, and one Daffodil are the royal frosting flowers that brighten this cake!!  For the border we had to add extra powdered sugar to get it stiff enough to pipe.  She was happy with the final results!!
