I love spring and flowers and cake, so why not combine all three into a post?

Even though mums are typically fall flowers, using my chrysanthemum Bundt pan makes me think of spring. Plus, it doesn't need any decoration beyond a glaze or powdered sugar.

Spring also means I get to clean my house which may involve some lemon-scented cleaner. If you want a lemon scent in your home without cleaning, try making this Lemon Cake. Then you can have spring and cake and a flower AND lemon all at the same time too.
