Bonsai Tree Birthday

A lovely Red Velvet Bonsai tree cake for Russell's birthday, very spring like and perfect for this time of year. "Bonsai" is a Japanese pronunciation of the earlier Chinese term penzai. A "bon" is a tray-like pot typically used in bonsai culture. The word bonsai is often used in English as an umbrella term for all miniature trees in containers or pots.
