Wow 5 months already! He's 27 1/2 inches long, 18.7 pounds and loves to eat his toes and just about anything else that is in reach. We've been keeping him busy lately with apple picking (getting ready to make his baby food soon), Grant's Farm, the Zoo, playdates, Parents as Teachers, Meetup St. Louis, and just hangin' with his big sis. What a life!

Starburst Rose

Check it out...instead of making roses out of icing...why not starbursts...they taste yummy and it turns looks good too. I hear tootsie rolls get the same effect. Yeah for creativity! This is the base...1 whole starburst.

First you need to smoosh (technical term) them out. I cut them in half because I didn't want a huge glob (another technical term) of starburst at the bottom. I also thinned the edges a bit more.

Then comes shaping the rose and adding petals to the base.

Yeah for the final product!
