For anyone who appreciates a cupcake that is as beautiful as it is delicious, you will appreciate my latest PBS Parents episode on how to pipe these gorgeous flowers on top of a cupcake using homemade buttercream. Using a #104 tip and a piping bag, you can easily pipe a dozen of these cupcakes in about 10 minutes once you get the hang of it. Piping a frosting petal is as simple as making an upside down “U” with the piping tip over and over again while rotating the cupcake.
I love finishing off the cupcakes with either sprinkles or coconut. Perfect for birthdays, showers, or any special occasion, these cupcakes will make any occasion all the more special. Watch this video to learn how to pipe these beautiful cupcakes . Enjoy!
