  • Recipe

Ingredients

Pre-made cupcakes

Pink buttercream

Orange buttercream

Instructions

1Using the orange butter cream piping bag, place the tip of the piping nozzle at the centre of the cupcake and pipe a small neat line outwards, towards the edge of the cake

2Repeat this step next to the line you’ve just piped, until you have piped lines all around the edge of the cupcake. Turn the cupcake in your hand to make this easier

3Then, following the same procedure, pipe a layer of neat lines all around the cupcake on top of the bottom layer. (Make them slightly shorter than the piped lines on the bottom layer)

4Using the pink buttercream piping bag, pipe a circular swirl of buttercream in the middle of the cupcake

5Decorate your flower cupcakes even further, however you like! Whether that be with sprinkles, fondant leaves or placing it in a flower pot to amaze your friends with your presentation skills! Feel free to change up the colours too.
