Dropped a little dough on the floor...

Busy busy!  Hey there, I haven't been able to do too much baking lately besides work-related stuff, but here's a picture of my first gumpaste flowers:


I think they're cute, but I don't like the shading of pink in the middle!  But thanks to some research on a VERY cute flickr site, I figured out I should be using powder color instead of shimmer dust to achieve the shading I want.  

While I have time, I have to mention my top 10 favorite baking blogs to read.  These blogs provide me with daily inspiration, and you should read them when you get a chance!

1.   Building A Bakery
2.   Cakespy
3.   Bakerella (recently on Martha Stewart!)
4.   MadBaker
5.   David Lebovitz
6.   Business of Cake
7.   Chockylit
8.   How to Eat A Cupcake
9.   Gigi Cakes
10. Pink Cake Box

AND...since I spend hours on the wilton.com discussion forum looking at cakes, I have to mention a cake I am absolutely in love with.  It's a tie-dye cake!  

What I love about it is that even the cake part is tie-dye.  I'm going to have to make this one soon for sure!  I'll post again soon - I'm making french macarons on Thursday at work!  

P.S.  I dropped 30 croissants worth of dough on the ground last night at work - oops.  lol

That cake is so cool! Have you googled the tie-dye cheesecake yet? I want to make that so bad!
