Tulips are a difficult flower in Buttercream. This project took some figuring out. The Petals are made with a # 402 Mum tip , still available through Wilton.com. The flowers are built on a short straw and a mini marshmallow.
This Arrangement has roughly 40 flowers. It takes time and some thought for placement, but the effect proves worth it. See the tutorial here:

|I Saw this flower in a florist shop and just had to figure out a way to make it for a cake.|
I went through 4 generations before I finally got what I wanted.
|I found that the biggest struggle was to make the petals irregular. It's such a habit to make things even that I had to really try to make them uneven. But it really needs to be.|
|Mounting this flower on the side proved to be a bit more challenging. But all in all this is a very easy and quick flower after just a little practice.|
|This is the third generation of this flower, it was still to even at this point. I also added some yellow in the center. |

|Cake Pop Snowmen are a fun afternoon project. The Cake Pop Dough is so simple and yummy, made with any kind of cake marshmallow and chocolate. It turns in to a delicious dough the consistency of play dough. It really holds it's shape!|
|The accessories are also candy melt. Easy for kids to make as they are just dots for eyes and buttons and a carrot shape for the nose. The scarf is strips of sour gummy candy.|
See three little boys have fun making these adorable snowmen:
