Flower Making!

I've been a flower making fool lately!  I'm half way thru my second Wilton course and I'm LOVING it!  My friends aren't loving the flower phase, because unfortunately if I'm only making flowers, I'm not making cakes.  For some reason they LOVE being the guinnea pigs for my "test kitchen."  Haha! 

A few pictures of my flowers, and yes, I apologize in advance for the poor quality, it was dark and all I had was my phone for pictures. 

I also got to use Royal Icing for the first time to flood an area.  I've been dying to learn how to do that because I want to make those SUPER cute sugar cookies that always have super smooth looking icing on the top.  It didn't turn out as well as I had imagined (I had a disaster with my piping bag) but after testing it out, I know what I did wrong and I'm prepared for next time.  Hallelujah!  I think there may be a day of cooking baking in my near future!  Here's the bunny I created to put on my class finale cake:

I will be creating lots of goodies this weekend, thanks to my lovely 40% off coupon for all Wilton products.  I can't wait! 


  1. nice job Stephie! you're a little baker. you can open up your own little cookie etsy shop online :)

    conner's b-day, skulls and stars cookies need that smooth icing look - may need your help!

  2. Did I talk to you about Etsy? I just found it like two days ago! I'm all over the cookie Etsy shop...I just need to make sure I can make cookies. LOL! I'll be testing out my skull and star making skills soon.
