One!

Isn't one such a fabulous age! I think so! I was so excited when I got asked to make these cookies by a friend from college. She wanted to give them to a friend who's daughter, Violet, was having a 1st birthday. Here is what I came up with...and I have a little tutorial on how to make the flowers.

 Put your number right in the middle.
 With really thick royal icing & tip #81 (curved side up) pipe a 
plus sign making each side equal in length.
 Pipe 4 more equal length segments in between the 4 arms of the plus sign.
 Fill the entire bottom with long segment, then start overlapping with shorter segments 
until you have about 4 layers on top of eachother. Then simply fill in the top with 
short segments to make the mum look full.
 Place 3-6 colored sugar pearls in the center. Remember don't spend a bunch 
of money on buying sugar pearls in every color of the rainbow, you can easily 
make a variety of colors by following my tutorial.
Happy Baking, Happier Eating!
