Whoops; I already did tributes to both Kentucky AND Nebraska (aka my grey period); states where the goldenrod is the official state flower! So much for 50 states in 50 days…anyway, here's a little bonus. The goldenrod comes in 100 different varieties, so this is just a typical example. Photos I've seen of them show them in clusters, so you'll probably want to pipe lots of these and then scatter them across a cake or cupcakes. Here's all you'll need: stiff consistency royal icing in yellow (er, goldenrod), oval tip #57, round tip #5, parchment paper squares, a flower nail, a Styrofoam brick to rest the nail in, a glue stick, and a dusting pouch filled with a 50/50 mix of powdered sugar and cornstarch. Start by sticking a parchment square to the nail with a dab from the glue stick.
