Hello everyone! Just wanted to share my latest cupcakes with all of you! The cake is red velvet and the flowers are made of buttercream. Happy holidays!
beautiful--eye candy colors too--so pleasant--it's the lighting on the photographs too--thanks for posting--
sarge--add cornstarch to your icing (for the mum tip) and pinch the ends of the petals with corn starch dipped finger tips--
i pipe a base first like for a rose too--but i guess i'd omit that step if i was piping directly on a cupcake--
Excellent!! It's so hard to keep those petals upright and individual. Would you share which recipe you used to form them?
Stitches - Make a medium-consistency buttercream with butter, confectioner's sugar, a little milk, and vanilla. The key is to cream the butter and sugar well, and use less milk.
Thanks, that's what I do.
I found the stiff shortening based recipes like from CakeGirls works well for piped flowers........but they never taste great. Butter frosting always melts out on my flowers.
The cupcakes are really beautiful. I'm always impressed with pretty butter cream. I need to be more disciplined about practicing.
Very pretty! Mum kick my butt too. They are a mess, but I use a stiff icing. I would like to practice, but money is my main motivator out in the bakery ;-) How long do those take you, OP? I am seeing a great promo for Mother's Day!
