No update of substance, so here's an update of pure candy fluff.
I'm making some cupcakes for a friends daughters birthday. Tonight I made some of the stuff that goes on top of the cupcakes. The youtube tutorial I was attempting to follow said that they are supposed to be succulents. My attempt tomorrow with a slightly looser icing might be a bit neater. These took a bit too much hand strength to be as tidy as I would like.
In my experience, doing something for the second time usually goes about 500% better than the first time. These already look awesome, so attempt #2 is probably going to be outstanding. Can we get an update? :)
