Even though our seasons are mild in SoCal, I still look forward to spring when the bulbs come up in the flower bed. My iris' are very close to blooming, can't wait! I wanted to make some spring like flowers to send out in Easter packages to my inlaws & friends. I decided to do daisies.
I made some premade flower centers a few weeks before with some left over royal icing. It's a great way to use up left over icing & also makes it really easy to get perfect centers on your flowers. You can find out how to make your own on my previous post here. I can't take the credit for thinking to do this, I owe it all to Sugarbelle for the idea. You can also use the "dots" on top of cakes & cupcakes like confetti.
First I piped the petals with 20 second icing.
By the time I was done piping all my cookies, I was ready to start filling in alternating petals
After about 10 minutes, I filled in the last 3 petals and then placed a flower center on the wet icing.
Hope you all are enjoying spring... Next up > Carrot Cookies for Easter!
