This is my first attempt at making the hydrangea cupcakes that I found on this blog.
I love her work!! They look much better than mine, but I learned a lot about what not to do on these!! I will definitely be trying them again in the near future.
And, yes, I realize that hydrangeas don't come in these colors! But I was inspired by this large pot of fall colored velvet-silk hydrangeas that are sitting on my dining table. A terrible picture, but you get the idea.
My first mistake was trying a new frosting recipe. I loved the frosting, but it didn't do the flower thing very well!
But, everyone at our Thanksgiving dinner who didn't know any better thought they looked great!
And I tried out a new chocolate cake recipe that was absolutely delicious!
