For the 2nd class we used royal icing and made the apple blossom, violet, and violet leaf. The flowers were pretty easy to make. The royal icing was fun and easy to work with. You use different tips to add petals one at a time. They are so cute.
Then we also used color flow and made blue birds. It was fun using the color flow, it was pretty easy. You first make an outline in stiffer icing, then water it down a little and fill it in to make it bubble a little. It kinda makes it 3D. I still need to add the eye for the bird, but I needed to wait until it dried. You'll see them done on the final cake in 2 weeks.
