Volunteering for Bake A Wish has provided me with so many opportunities to flex my creative muscles. For example, a request came in recently to provide sweets for an Art Show at one of the children's homes that Bake A Wish serves.
The order of the day: 3 dozen mini cupcakes with an art theme. I started rifling through my cookie cutter drawer and re-discovered this collection of mini-fruit cutters and lo and behold, the lemon-shaped one looked just perfect for making sweet little artists out of fondant. I used half of a miniature pumpkin cookie cutter to fashion their berets and voila! Les petites artistes!
