There is a very special appreciation luncheon being held today at the New Hartford Junior High School. It is the Veteran’s History Club Luncheon. Now I’m not quite sure of the details, but one very dear Apple Crumble’s customer has invited Veterans to tell a little bit about themselves to her class. Sue…if I have that all wrong, please correct me.
For the luncheon, a cake was ordered and then I had some fun with a cookie bouquet.
These are chocolate chip and brownie cookies with red, white, and blue, candy melts used for decorating. The sticks used were 3 different sizes and inserted into a styrofoam ball at the bottom of a small ceramic flower pot. A small “flag” style cloth napkin is wrapped around the pot and tucked into it, secured by the styrofoam ball.
Next is the cake. This is an 11 x 18 yellow cake. It was washed with a vanilla sugar wash. The filling is done 1/2 in red (strawberry) and 1/2 in blue (blueberry). The red side is coated in strawberry preserves, the blue side, blueberry preserves. The preserves are topped with vanilla cream. On top of the vanilla cream are fresh sliced strawberries on one side and fresh blueberries on the other side. The cake is finished in buttercream.
See you tonight. I’m trying something different with carrots.
