Plant a Seed…

Plant a seed and watch it grow… That’s exactly what 9-year-old Maggie did with giant sunflower seeds. As it turned out, she had

quite a green thumb! Her sunflowers grew so tall. They were beautiful, too-just like Maggie! 

When it came time for her birthday, I made her a cake and some cupcakes that showed off her love for gardening.

Plenty of sunflowers growing tall above the grass and a few scattered ladybugs, too. I had seen some cupcakes similar to mine that a friend made and had wanted to make a cake with sunflowers ever since. I let the chocolate cookie centers hang off the cake just enough so that when I added the stems, it would look like they were growing all around the cake. I also added grass on the cupcakes and the cake. It was fun to make and I’m pretty sure Miss Maggie liked eating them as much as I liked making them!
