Fondant Flowers Everywhere!
Here's a picture of what I've been up to for the past few days. It's been a weighty week (and I don't mean in the fat sense). My friend Michelle's baby shower is Saturday and I'm hard at work making enough fondant flowers for her cupcakes, which I am making as well. Of course, none of this is on Weight Watchers, but sometimes you have to make sacrifices for your friends. Michelle is definitely worth the risk of me gaining a few pounds, but I've resolved not to gain, not this week.
Fondant isn't a big must-have for me (not since I made about 200 fondant roses for my friends Marina and Paul's wedding). However, the cake batter and the buttercream frosting are another story. I'm making the cupcakes on Friday night and then I get weighed in Saturday morning, so I have some incentive. I plan on dumping the bowls in sudsy water so I won't be tempted. I'll let you know how I do over the weekend.
Just to keep you interested, I'm working on a few new recipes, one of them a Turkey Shepherd's Pie (thanks for the suggestion Marina!).
And for those of you who have ideas for new recipes, please send them along to me. I'm happy to do my best in creating the recipe you're looking for. Thanks!
