Sydney started noticing personalized fortune cookies and thought it might be fun if we created fondant fortune cookies with a gumpaste personalized message. I thought it would be perfect to add cherry blossoms gumpaste flowers with cherry blossom flavored cupcakes. As I have written prior, cherry blossoms are a major part of D.C. history. Sydney and I FaceTime and Skyped this post together, I must admit it was hilarious to watch us trying to figure the structure of the fortune cookie over the internet (D.F. was in tears from laughing). There were a few times Sydney became dizzy from my jerking the iPad too quickly, but for the most the virtual baking was easier than I thought. Although I found my self missing Sydney more as we virtually baked together; a few times I asked her grab an ingredient for me.. she had to remind me I would be waiting months until she could grab the superfine sugar to give to me.
