For Mustang Sally's bridal shower last weekend, Saucy made red velvet cupcakes with a cream cheese filling and decorated them like sunflowers... sunflowers will be used in the bouquets at the wedding. Saucy thinks. Well at any rate, they were used on the cupcakes and Saucy is taking the wedding pictures in a couple of weeks so you might see what the flowers look like then.
Sunflower cupcakes are easy... pipe chocolate buttercream in a large circle using a small star tip in the centre of the cake. You can build it up a little... the more frosting the better. Then, using a leaf tip, add the yellow petals around the perimeter of the flower. You can sprinkle chocolate jimmies or shot on the brown part to make it look more like sunflower seeds.
The Emmy Awards are Sunday night. Saucy will be blogging the dresses furiously. She's no Joan Rivers, but she likes the gig. Here's hoping for some fashion hits and misses, just for giggles.
