Bridge's Sunflower Shower
Bridge's bridal shower #2 was filled with sunflowers, including my 1st real fondant experience. A few weeks ago I practiced the technique with my experiment recipe and gum paste petals (see previous post), but for the shower I used yellow sparkled and orange fondant petals (lots and lots of cookie cutting for these guys!) and mini chocolate chips as the center. Turned out adorable - and perfect as the sidekick for Mrs. Ferg's cute decorations and the vanilla ice cream they were served with. I also fitted the table with personal purple watering can sugar cookies - note to everyone: 80 degrees is TOO hot to bake sugar cookies. Saying goodbye to these guys until October!
