Pink Anemone

This week’s adventure is with fondant/gumpaste flowers.  I love anemones-they are one of my favorite flowers.  They are just so light and airy and beautiful.  It’s a good thing this was just for practice because I cracked a couple of the petals when I moved it this morning to take the picture.

100_3561This is the tutorial I based my flower on.  Of course I don’t have a large rose petal cutter so I used a large circle cutter and formed the petals to a rose petal shape.  Overall not too bad for my first go!  Hopefully I will have time to make more flowers soon.

Hooray for Burnt Butter Frosting!!

So, Will and I finished our cupcakes this morning.  We made burnt butter frosting to go with our peanut butter cupcakes.  This is seriously the pb cupcakesbest stuff I have ever tasted.  Not even joking!!  I got the recipe from allrecipes.com.  Click on the word recipe to go directly to it. 

I also took the time to play with a little bit of fondant to make some pretty flowers and I tried my hand at poured fondant.  Since I am the only girl in a house full of boys I have to get the pretty pink and purple stuff in somehow so when I am playing/experimenting that’s just what I do.

  The poured fondant wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it would be.  After I’ve done it a few times I’ll post a tutorial.  Will got out the gumpaste tools and tried his hand at fondant modeling.  Too cute!  You can see my new cupcake pics in the Cupcake Gallery.

What a great day!!
