Hydrangea Cupcakes

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!

Cute Bow Dress

I've been having fun making these cute little bow dresses!

My daughters and daughter-in-law have tons of bows for their girls. This is the cutest way I've seen so far to hang them.

My daughter had me make this one for a friend. The color theme was yellow, brown and red to match her daughter's room.

Thanksgiving Cookies

Here are some decorated sugar cookies I made for Thanksgiving.

I had to make some turkeys for the occasion, but these look a little bare! Next year I'll add more feathers or something.

Then I made fall leaves using green as the base color here . . .

. . . and with brown as my base color here.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!
