I'm doing this for my Mom for Mother's Day and need all the encouragement I can get thumbs_up.gif

I baked a chocolate cake in an actual flower put and covered it in fondant, painted it. Doesn't look too bad - just a little lopsided at the moment. The "paint" is taking forever to dry - UGH! I guess I should've learned my new airbrush for this new project icon_confused.gif

Now onto the cookies. I covered some in fondant (Mom's not a HUGE fan of it so I only did a few) and the others in royal icing. Now I need to do the finishing details. And assemble to look like a blooming pot of flowers.

I'll eventually get a pic posted - wish me luck icon_biggrin.gif

Okay, should now move this over to CAKE DISASTERS icon_cry.gif

Guess I needed a firmer cake, after I started to add cookies it started to collapse. Oh well, Mom loved it either way (just got it early since it won't make it until morning in 1 piece). And I know it all tastes good icon_smile.gif

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there!
