Flower Cupcake Tutorial

Wednesday, August 1, 2012

Everybody loves a cupcake, and a fancy cupcake gets more ooohs and ahhhs than a new car.  Try these flower cupcakes out at your next dinner party and wow your friends with your crazy cupcake skills.  If yours don't turn out exactly as planned, you can always order a dozen from Scooter Cakes...  


Start by filling a piping bag with your frosting.  I used a #104 tip from Wilton.  I like to use my plastic scraper to get the frosting nice a tight and into the tip.


Start with the fat side down and pipe your first petal.


It should look like this.


Then pipe all around the cupcake in a single layer of petals


Do the same thing on top of the first round, but a little shorter.


Then, for the third layer, turn the tip a little more up and down and make little short petals.


Then top with sprinkles or little pearly dragees.  


They are so easy and turn out beautifully.
