The cinnamon scrolls ritual...

Every year on her birthday I bake a dozen cinnamon scrolls for Blossom.
She much prefers these to a cake.

This year I've baked the scrolls a day early so she and her DB can feast on them for breakfast tomorrow.

I was going to drop them over to her before dinner but she couldn't wait that long and while they were still baking in the oven she arrived in my kitchen...

...and as I spread the hot scrolls with her favourite strawberry icing she couldn't resist getting her fingers into the sugary sweetness to 'test' it.
Really??

While we waited for them to cool down Blossom traced off a design she is going to stitch for my sweet friend and fellow Flower Sugar World Ambassador, Minki...

You can see Minki's design here on her blog. She's created it with her own set of stamps and it's gorgeous! I just love her skill with freestyle machine embroidery and applique.
Minki had asked me to stitch her design in hand embroidery but as my own workload is so full Blossom offered to do it instead...

I can't wait to see Blossom's version of Minki's design, and I'll be sure to show you too. 



Mr E just suggested we drop over to Blossom's in the morning before he goes to work so we can share in her birthday breakfast. 
I just wonder if there will be any cinnamon scrolls left for us?
Her last text to me this evening simply said, "nom nom nom" so I have a feeling she and her DB are enjoying a pre-birthday cinnamon scroll supper instead. 

Gotta love family traditions that put a smile on your face!

hugs

I'm sure if a pan of those showed up at my house, they'd never last until breakfast ... with just me, myself and I eating them. That's 4 each, so not too bad, right? LOL They do look yummy. I look forward to seeing Blossom's finished work. I went to have a look and those are wonderful stamps! I didn't know about Minki, so thanks for the link.

oh my gosh, those look delish, do you have a recipe you can share, and judging by the smile on your daughters face, she is loving them, thank you for sharing

Marian said...

good gracious, look at those lovely cinnamons scrolls!! Do you use a bread/yeast dough or a scone mixture? I think my cold would be happy with anything right now, so cinnamon scones it is - for now!! Thak you for sharing Minki's work, I can't wait to see Blossom's work.

Take Care,

Marian xo

Happy belated Birthday to Blossom. I'm sure your cinnamon rolls taste even better than they look. Strawberry icing on them sounds great.
