Spring is now truly in the air, and with the better weather of April comes a desire to make everything feel like the seasons have changed — even when it comes to our cakes and cupcakes. In the video above, Jennifer Aaronson of Martha Stewart Living shows the steps to making a perfect daffodil out of icing to accompany your baked goods. It's not as difficult as one might think. It just requires two pastry bags, two pastry tips, some colored frosting, and a steady hand. Then, the rest of the work is all in the wrist. Aaronson believes it's a complex-looking design, but one that even a novice can master. It will certainly make your cakes stand out and look seasonally inclined!

You can watch the video above to see the steps for how it is done, and if you are inspired you can head over to Martha Stewart for a full series of cake- and cupcake-related videos.
