Too Pretty To Eat

It's been a week of baking fun. Made a batch of mooncakes and they turned out pretty well this time compared to the ones I made last year...forgot to take photos of them before giving them away to my parents-in-law and relatives, though.

Hubby's colleague also gave these pretty little biscuits...can't imagine how she finds time to bake so many types of cookies, being a working mom with 3 young children!

And the inside...yummy!

On that very same day before hubby came back with that box of lovely Raya cookies, I had decided to try out something I had seen on the internet...cupcakes wrapped with fondant to resemble little flower pots, and then topped with butter icing 'grass' and little fondant flowers.

Couldn't resist taking close-up photos of them since I had spent so much time moulding the fondant and turning my fingers into various colours because of the food colouring I used...

The last colour I used was pink, for the flowers. It will take 1 or 2 days before my fingers look normal again.

Your "flower pot" & "flowers" are sooooo cute and pretty. And yes, too pretty to eat!

Thanks, Yuin Ting. I don't think I'll be making anymore of these in the near future...pretty but very time-consuming to make!
