Garden Cupcake Tutorial Day 3 Peas

Today we finish our little garden we started. :) This would also be great for Mother's Day and all those mothers that love to garden.  I know my Mom loves to garden. Her favorite part of raising a garden is watching the old fashioned greasy beans grow. So, I know she would love these cupcakes. I may have to make her a few with a Happy Mother's Day sign on them. :)

All the little veggies in a row. :)

Today we are working on the peas or green beans. Which ever you want to call them. These are super super simple but adds so much to the look.

1. Start like we did for day 2. A small pea sized
gumpaste / fondant mix colored green.

3. Roll each ball into a snake shape like we did in
grade school. You want it to be pretty skinny.

4. Wrap each snake around a spaghetti stick. 
We made 3 of these for each cupcake.

5. Now let them dry. We used this twisty wash rag to 
hold them. 

See how much they add to the look of a garden.

We added a cute little over the hill cake topper and we were all set for a 60th birthday lunch. Let the kids sing happy birthday and help Papaw blow out the candles. They were a hit and the kids loved them.

LOL The kids thought it was really funny!!
