The Ult. Choc. Cupcake Search goes on!

We didn't find the Ultimate Chocolate Cupcake this time around, but boy, in my opinion, it was close! Other Explorers found it a little too much like a brownie than a cupcake though, so we're still searching.

Floral Wire and tape for cake flowers--WARNING!

I've always thought it a bad idea to stick these directly into a cake--you just don't know what they're made of, and even the ones used in the Wilton classes and sold by Wilton aren't  foodsafe--it doesn't claim to be, and doesn't say either way on the packaging.
The best thing to do is stick the flower wires into a
posy prick" or flower holder--sold by Wilton, and also florists, and in the floral section of Michael's, etc., or use plastic drinking straws.

Here is a comprehensive explanation from Sherri [Cakepro] at Cake

Decorate safely folks! :)

We can't post the recipe yet, until the exploration is complete, so check back!
