Ever since I began learning how to make flowers in my Wilton classes, I’ve become rather preoccupied with thoughts of flowers. Their relative size, color(s), shape, construction… it’s all suddenly become fascinating to me. C. has been attending day camp for the past two weeks and during my 17 mile drive to and from camp twice a day, I passed hundreds of blooming day lilies, just as I was learning how to make Easter lilies in class. I’ve always loved those vibrant orange to copper-hued day lilies, so I made a bunch out of royal icing for my finale cake. I didn’t end up using them for that, but they will undoubtedly make their way on to another cake this summer.
