Daisies in a Mint Julep Cup

Is there anything more refreshing than the look of a nosegay in a mint julep cup? It just whispers spring, graduations, Maypoles, the Kentucky Derby, okay, for that they'd need to be roses. But,... you get what I mean. This is the cake my daughter and I made for her Graduation party. Red velvet cake, white icing and a white fondant with black and white ribbons for that special touch. This was our first attempt at fondant and it was much easier than was expected. It was so easy, I wish I had gone ahead with the fondant two years earlier for her sister's graduation. (Sorry 'bout the smurf cake, sweetie -I'll make it up to you. I promise!) In front are two of the mint julep cups, found at the wedding section of Michael's, we filled with Daisies and used as flowers on this and the buffet table.
