However, we are supposed to practice the flowers we learn, so I volunteered to make the birthday cake for one of the girls at work. Last week's featured flowers were apple blossoms and violets:
If nothing else, it will really stand out amongst the pumpkin and pecan pies that people are bringing for tomorrow's Thanksgiving lunch!
