This was for my beautiful mother-in-law for her birthday! She has some purses any woman would covet so I thought this was only appropriate.
The cake is red velvet with fondant overlay and edible silver dust on the "zipper."
I learned a lot from this cake about working with cream cheese icing and fondant overlay. (It's tricky!)
Happy Birthday to my sweet Mother-in-law! Thank you for all that you have done and do for your kiddos and me. I love you!
My favorite flower is the ranunculus.
I personally think it's a very under-appreciated flower. It's so gorgeous with all of it's delicate little petals. And, OK, maybe it reminds of this happy day oh so many years ago...
I had to have ranunculus in my wedding bouquet. (I love ranunculus so much that when I met with a florist who told me she didn't like ranunculus and wanted to put calla lilies in my bouqet instead, I knew we wouldn't be working together. I was a pretty easy-going bride too. I'm not knocking calla lilies; they're just not my kind of flower...)
You could say ranunculus make me jump for joy...
So, when I got an order for flower cupcakes (and they left the flower type up to me), I immediately thought about ranunculus flowers. I've been practicing my technique today. What do you think?...
I'm gonna go practice some more until I'm happy with them. I hope you are all having a great Wednesday.
By the way, our wedding photographer can be found here. He's amazing.
