Hi everyone..I'm hoping someone out there can give me some ideas.
My daughter is graduating from Kindergarten soon..and her teacher has just been so incredibly wonderful with helping her adjust to school and getting her to come out of her shell. Instead of getting her a mug and candies (which I'm sure she must have tonnes of.. ) I'd like to make her a cake. (or petit fours..which I've never done) Just something different to show my appreciation.
She travels alot and likes Hawaii so I'm thinking of maybe going along those lines.
I'm a bit of a newbie but I do like to work with MMF (and I bought gumtex to add to it to make stronger decorations..I have yet to make gumpaste) and of course buttercream.
There are so many talented people on C.C I can't wait to see what ideas you have.
Anyone?!?! No ideas?
Well.. you could make her something colorful with some frangipani and flip-flops on it. Maybe some cupcakes..
Frangipani look like this..
and are pretty easy to make.
Jeanne- I couldn't access your link. Would you repost? I'm definitely interested in finding out what this is....
I LOVE this teacher appreciation cake. It doesn't have a Hawaii or beach theme but it's sooo cute! Someday I'll make one for a teacher.
Last year I did summer themed cookies for my children's teachers. You can see them here:
For this end of term I am getting the kids to paint flower pots which I am using for cupcake bouquets.
Those flowers are BEAUTIFUL!!!
I know huh? And they are pretty simple to make too. They are very tropical and easier than say.. a hibiscus or an orchid would be and translate well to fondant over gumpaste as well.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I knew you'd come through for me.. Now I have something to work with...The flowers are beautiful!I'm not sure if I'm talented enough to do something like that but I can give it a try.
Thanks again everyone!
