Summer is almost gone, but the sunflowers still hang on They grow anywhere their seeds fall. They are tough and resilient, yet they are cheery and bright. I have sunflowers springing up in my yard where I know for a fact they were not planted. Their faces are so happy-and who wouldn't be when you take in the fact that sunflowers actually follow the sun as the world rotates around it. Center on the sun, the warmth and the light and you will always be happy. My Sunflower Weecakies are made using fabulous raspberry swirl cake from Carries Cakes (big news to follow), dipped in milk chocolate and decorated with a sunny flower cut from yellow chocolate. Oh, the ladybug...(Thanks to Hello Cupcake for the idea-It is a wonderful idea-cookbook) made from a mimi M&M, details drawn with an edible marker and the head a dot of dark chocolate. Dark green leaves back up each flower. Ladybugs, Happy Sunflowers and Carries Cakes....mmmmmmm.......yummy!
