It is nearing the end of “Cherry Blossom Time” in DC, but it has been beautiful. On Sunday, the city celebrated springtime with the annual Cherry Blossom festival, but I was paying tribute to the beautiful trees and flowers in my own way. I was hosting a workshop for my division, and where I work, the best way to get people to show up for things is to provide food!
SO, I decided to make cupcakes and cookies in the theme of “cherry blossoms.” I did a search on Google images, and I was shocked to see how many different versions of cherry blossom cupcakes and cookies there were!
I liked these best, but I had a feeling fondant was involved which is beyond my expertise, so I couldn’t replicate them.
Mine turned out more like these. I apologize for not taking pictures, but after baking and frosting and running to the store twice on Sunday, reaching for the camera proved too hard. Hee hee
Next year, I will create something like this! (That was a joke.)
