roasted strawberry cake with roasted strawberry frosting (and frosting flowers!)

Heyyyy!!!  I'm trying something a bit outside my comfort zone!  Piping flowers!!

I'm obsessed with Molly Yeh (WHO ISN'T?!!), and finally felt brave enough to try my hand at piping a few of my own flowers out of frosting.  Honestly, it was easier than I thought, although it is time consuming!  I love that there is really no risk here besides wasting your own time.  Ha!  And I'm obviously not scared of that!  Now, I'm not offering a full flower tutorial here (yet!!), since I'm still such a newbie.  But I watched a lot of youtube videos, practiced a lot, and just scraped the ones I didn't like back into the bowl of frosting.  Win!  Seriously, pipe a bunch onto parchment, and just redo them as you find a technique that works for you.  The hardest part is keeping your frosting at the right consistency, so doing this on a super hot day is a no no unless you have A/C!  (Or unless you're a late night baker like I am...haha!).  If you're frosting starts losing shape, then simply pop it back in the fridge to firm up a bit.
