Flowers, Flowers and More Flowers
My first week home, living here in rural Connecticut, I planted all the lily and daff bulbs and now it was time for me to catch up on another favorite past~time of mine.
Unfortunately I had missed the first class of Cake Decorating while I was in Aruba but had asked the instructor if I could make it up. (Silly as that may sound, even though I'm retired, I've always applied myself fully and this was not going to be the exception...not if I could help it!)
So on Thursday morning, I made the necessary icings and practiced Button Flowers and Daisies (made from a mixture of gum paste & fondant) and then attempted Apple Blossoms, Rosebuds, Roses and Pansies (made from Royal icing). By the time I went to class on Friday, I was all caught up, until...
We learned Daffodils and Lilies in class!!
Putting the finishing touches on them in class, I carefully placed them in the box I'd brought. Once home, I placed them on the kitchen island and told the Pres NOT to touch them.
to be continued...
