With a few simple ingredients and a steady hand, you can create an edible bouquet guests and family will love! Simply whip up a batch of cupcakes using your favorite recipe (we love this one from Life, Love and Sugar!) and then it’s time to get piping.

Here are our tips on how to create a pretty display of petals.

tipsTip 1: Pastry decorating tips are key to creating beautiful flowers on your cupcakes. Open star, drop flower and petal tips are helpful to have to create full and unique flowers.

Tip 2: Pipe the middle of your flower first. This will act as a guide for creating the rest of your petals and ensure you have an even flower. Just be sure when creating your petals to let a little bit of the middle peak through.

Tip 3: A good buttercream is essential to creating beautiful and delicious decorations. No matter which one you choose, be sure to reach for Minerva Dairy Amish Roll Butter for the richest flavor! Our 84% butterfat butter will add extra flavor and ensure you have a rich and delicious frosting to work with!
