When I made black dasies the first time and told my mom about them, I could hear her nose turn up over the phone. They are actually very chic looking. I think even she agreed in the end. :)
Although these are obviously cut with a cutter, I impress each petal individually by hand then let the flowers dry in egg cartons so they shape like this. I got the idea from a book called Organic and Chic by Sarah Magid. I love her work!
Note to self: The next time I design a cupcake with 7 polka dots on the top of each, make sure I don't have to make 60 of them. What is 60 x 7? Yeah.
Then after dinner we decided to make Banana Nut Minis.
When I bake for the family I try to bake with our health in mind. These are half whole wheat and use applesauce in place of most of the oil. But then I like to top them with butter when they're warm, so there goes that. :)
