This afternoon I baked two dozen delicious cupcakes with my friends Bre and Nicole. Bre had all the accoutrements to create decorations from gum paste. We chose leopard print wrappers and made brown flowers on top of orange icing to match. I now have a lot more respect for all those crazy icing creations seen on TV – gum paste is no easy media! I can’t imagine fondant being any easier to work with.
All in all, the cupcakes came out very pretty and I had a wonderful time with my friends and soon-to-be-former coworkers. I took my film camera, but I had no film.
