I don’t know why, but Easter always catches me off guard. Maybe it’s because it’s always shifting, or perhaps it’s because I have a tendency to avoid places that push Easter goods (card shops, big grocery stores, malls in general). But whatever the reason, there I was realizing I had just 2 weeks until Easter, and no idea what I would make to celebrate it.
Usually for Easter, I bake up some kind of sugar cookie, (of course) cut into bunny and chick shapes. This year, I wanted to do something different… Actually, I’ve been wanting to play around with gum paste and try my hand at gum paste flowers. Why not for Easter? Soon I was envisioning cupcakes, topped with flowers and the jellybeans that the Easter Bunny hid below them. They would be perfect… you know, if they even remotely resembled my vision 🙂
