Today's the day you'll want to see what I have in store for you. If I could choose a favorite from the party, this might be it, although I may have several favorites from the party. Not only were they perfect for a Shabby Chic party, they would be an adorable addition to your mother's day table. You haven't forgotten Mom have you?
When I found the tiny little pots, I fell in love, everything miniature is the cutest, right? You didn't know they make flower pots so small did you? I'm not sure what they are for, probably gardening or something. Now, let's get this straight, you know my terra cotta pots will never be filled with anything that actually grows...just say'in. Okay, now that we have that out of the way, let me show you what I planted...or should I say baked?
Edible Rose Topiary Trees
And the filling in the pot is edible as well as the top.
Because it's a cake pop!
Or should I say cake pot?
Grab your tools and let's get started.
I decided to make sure a mini muffin cup would fit. Yep, they fit.
Then I made my cake balls, put them in the muffin cup and then in the pot.
Pour over the cake ball.
Immediately, top the cake ball with edible moss, remember the edible moss invented by Mike of Semi Sweet?
If not, check it out HERE.
Next it's time to make the rose topiary tree.
Stick the flat end into the cake ball and leave the pointed end out. It will be easier to stick through the chocolate and into the cake that's in the terra cotta pot.
Dip the entire cake ball into the chocolate.
Immediately sprinkle with the graham cracker moss.
Set all the topiary trees aside.
My little cake pop holder comes in handy!
You can always use Styrofoam.
Now we'll add the roses.
Make a swirl for the rose.
Fill another pastry bag with green buttercream frosting and a #349 for the leaves.
Add the leaves beside the swirl rose.
If not, see those little roses on the counter? Well, those are some of the ones that dropped off.
Once all the roses have bloomed on the cake pop, stick the topiary tree into the terra cotta pot.
Hot glue a little fabric ribbon to the wooden skewer.
But what if you want to transport them?
No worries, I've got you covered!
Here they are displayed on the shelf. That perfect shelf for the party.
And the perfect tree for the shelf!
This is just a sneak peak of the party table, so many sweets to enjoy, I want you to savor the moment.
Plus I've given you enough time to plant a few topiary trees for mom too!
