Feature Fridays: Hummingbird Cupcakes for Dad
These cupcakes are symbolic to my Dad in many ways. The hummingbird cake was one of his favorite cakes. I decided to decorate them with handmade purple and yellow gumpaste roses to represent the fraternity that he was a member of since his college days at Johnson C. Smith University, Que Psi Phi. He never missed a homecoming football game after he graduated and he loved being with his "brothers" and wearing the fraternity colors. The white roses in the icing represent that he is an Angel in Heaven looking down on me. I will continue to make him proud.
Here are two close ups of the cupcakes that I made with the roses on top of each.
I hope that you have enjoyed this post. What are your favorite things to bake during the fall ?
