Potted Pastries

It might be too cold to plant flowers outside, but it's the perfect season for making flower cookies indoors.  After cutting the flower shapes out of my sugar cookie dough, I stuck a cookie/lollipop stick in each one and baked it. Next came the fondant to cover the cookie and the royal icing to add some definition to the petals.  And the sugar crystals never hurt either ;-) Once the flowers were done, it seemed unfair to let them stay on the plate.  The mini terra cotta pots stuffed with two shades of green felt were the perfect display for these pretty, tasty treats.
