Ribbon and Rose, Fondant and Marzipan

Sydney realized this is our 200th post; we wanted our 200th post to be special for our readers as well as ourselves. I must have gone through hundreds of ideas, only to realize I had already shown a tutorial or given the recipe.

Sydney and I were baking pain au chocolates, when the phone rang, I  heard Sydney exclaim an alarming phrase. My first thought was DF had been hurt by the tracker he was playing on, I was mistaken (thankfully). He had lost his wedding band, we both immediately stopped what we were working on and ran outside. In the  front lawn we found my husband, Sydney’s father, walking in a circle. He had...
