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.
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!
