The first faculty meeting at a new school seemed like a fine time to make a good impression. Nothing too fancy, but we started getting better at smoothing the fondant--that and the bright red color are particularly eye-catching. The stem, leaf, and banner are fondant, and the worm (my favorite part!) is a wire coat hanger inside a bendy straw. When we stuck him in after the rest was done, the whole creation took on a sort of cartoony style that I really dug.
