A week ago Sunday, our girls gave Mom a floral cake for her birthday. Today, she said, “That cake is looking kind of tired. I hate to see it go, though.”
So, before she got up, I did this.
The “cake” was made of a cylinder of floral foam, so I cut a slice off the bottom, put it into one of those flat-bottomed soup dishes, watered it, and stuck the unwilted blooms into it. That should last for a few more days.
The baby’s breath and little rosebuds were drying beautifully, and so were some of the pinky things. The big rose was starting to brown, because it was too big to dry. So I pulled out the core and pinched off the brown bits and spread the petals. I pulled the petals off the half-wilted daisies and broke the stems off the centers. Now I have this.
Today on Fatal Foodies, I’m writing about some Chinese-type foods I made this week.
