I figured that before I give up any beads or tools, I should try to actually make some jewellery. So here is a bracelet for Spring. I did string a matching necklace, but as I photographed it, I realized that a bead was not working in the design. So here is the bracelet. I got some new cookie cutters today for spring. I will ice up some of the flowers I baked this week and should have some to show for tomorrow. I tried using meringue powder this time so that the icing doesn't have raw egg white, but I find it a bit gritty. I used hot water and everything but I wonder if you can dissolve it first. I also tried a corn syrup based glossy icing, but it takes *forever* to harden.
