My little girl recently turned one and I chose sunflowers as the the theme for the party. I love baking almost as much as I love craft so I had a blast working towards bringing the theme to life. Of course, once I got my hands on the Sunflower Plunger cutter from Itsy Bitsy, everything was smooth sailing.
My cake turned out awesome but ultimately I felt it a little small so to add to the quantity, I made little chocolate cupcakes surrounding the main cake. Each cupcake was topped with a double layered fondant sunflower, cut using this dreamy plunger cutter. I've added a close-up of the toppers above and you can see the awesome detailing that the cutter delivers. For the centre I just used some chocolate chips.
This cutter can also be used for cookies and one of the snacks I was serving for the little ones was in fact sugar cookies. The pack comes with 3 different sizes so I used all three cutters to make an assortment of little sunflower cookies. Once they were baked, I used some yellow glaze icing to colour the petals and for the centre it was chocolate sprinkles! Have to say they were quite a hit! Sugar cookies always are!
What do you think of my little baking escapade? Would love to hear your feedback. Leave a comment and let me know.
