Spring Flours

So where should I start catching you up on what I’ve been up to the past few weeks. Well it’s about time I commented on the new season. We’ve had a couple of sunny days, the clocks have gone forward and Mother’s day passed without hitch. Although nothing says it’s spring like freshly sprung flowers.

It was only my second time with a piping bag full of sugar and butter but after a few scraped off attempts I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out. Perfect for Mother’s day or any other day where flowers are appropriate.

I used a polystyrene ball that fits snuggly perching on top of the rim of a flower pot.
