Cupcake Garden

Wednesday night in my cake class we practiced lots and lots of flowers!! We had to bring cupcakes and made eat one into a different flower and we even learned The Rose.



We made a sideview carnation...


Top view carnation...


Daffodill (mine looked like something with 3 legs was trying to climb out!!)...


Chrysantamum (I know i spelled that wrong!)...



Sweet peas...


Some sort of generic 5-petaled flower I forgot the name of...


And The Rose!!!




That took alot of practice, but I think I started getting them to look like roses, and not little cabbages. It's so fun learning which tips do what different techniques. I see all my tips in my box and they are all so mysterious and now I know what most of them can do! I hope to remember all this when it comes time to put it to good use. I hope these photos act as a good reference.

Hope you are all having a great Saturday! It was hot for us and now we're having a movie night. I sure hope the kiddies sleep in tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!!
