All the flowers this week seemed appropriate. It rained all winter and it's been beautiful and warm for a week now. The whole desert has turned bright green (yes, it does happen) and started to bloom. A wonderful way to start the spring.
Week 3 of Course 2 was more flowers! Did I mention before how much I like these flowers? I had some triumphs (whoo-hoo primrose) and some tragedies (mums), but got a whole mess of flowers for the cake for the last class and a homework assignment to make a whole bunch more.
We startede with mums. They didn't go well for me. Though I think it was more of an icing consistency issue than anything else.
The daisies were an issue too. My petals liked to make a spiral shape rather than radial petals. And the first half always looked better than the last half because I'd drag the tip through the ones I'd already made. But they're just too dang cute.
I LOVED the pansies. Though they made me think of my mother's bathroom. I tried a couple different color combinations.
White and yellow:
And yellow and purple:
I think I will paruse the interwebs and find some fun color combinations for the rest of them. Some bag striping seems appropriate.
But out of all of the flowers, my favorite is the primrose. They're supposed to be pink, but this was in the last 10 minutes of class, so I just used the white bag already prepped. But I ADORE these flowers and the sweet little heart-shaped petals.
Next up is the final cake! We'll get to see all these flowers and sightless birds together!
