These are the type of daisies I can grow~
Now on to the fondant sign~
Start with brown fondant or chocolate candy clay.
I added white because the Wilton fondant was too dark.
I used my Makins embossing mat to make the wood grain.
Roll out the brown fondant.
Lay embossing mat across the fondant and hold in place while pressing across the top with the fondant roller. (Not shown)
Using the Altoid container, cut out the sign.
Press Happy Mother’s Day in the sign using a letter embossing stamp.
Make sure you put the letters in your stamp the right way or it will be backwards like the last photo.
I did that just to show you what would happen…well, sort of.
Next you’ll need to bake and make the garden sign~
With my gazillion cookie cutters, I still didn’t have the cutter I wanted.
I needed a rectangle cutter with a rounded edge.
I used my Altoids container (which I took apart) to cut the cookies.
After they were baked and as soon as they came out of the oven,
I inserted Popsicle sticks.
Once they cooled, add a little Karo syrup and brush across cookie.
Apply the garden sign.
Time to assemble the cupcake garden.
Oops, I forgot to tell you to bake the cupcakes…So, Bake The Cupcakes!!
After baking the cupcake and letting it cool,
I frosted the top of the cupcake with green butter cream frosting.
Pile it high so it makes a mound for your garden!
Add a cupcake liner to the bottom of the terracotta pot and then add the cupcake.
Frost around the top of the cupcake with a grass decorating tip.
Add the fondant flowers, garden sign and white bow if you’d like!
I didn’t realize what a terrific gardener I had become because out of the cupcake garden, I grew so many daisies I didn’t know what to do with them. And then I DID know what to do with them~
