How to Make Flower Birthday Cupcakes

Oct 16, 2012 at 3:08 PM Chime in now


Instructions adapted with permission from What’s New Cupcake? by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson

What you’ll need:

Vanilla cupcake mix
Cupcake pan
Orange cupcake paper liners
Decorating sugars in blue, white, light yellow, bright pink, bright yellow, orange, and purple
Mini marshmallows in white and pastel colours
Vanilla frosting
Pastel coloured licorice pastels
Green licorice twists

How to make it:

1. Bake the cupcakes according to the directions on the cake mix box.

2. Top each cupcake with vanilla frosting.

3. Cut each marshmallow diagonally, dipping each corner you snip off into colourful sugar, creating a colourful petal -- each cupcake will need about 22 of them.

4. Add the marshmallow petals to the top of each cupcake in a circular arrangement, working from the outside in.

5. Add licorice pastels to create “stamens.” Cut them and place them in the center of each flower.

6. Arrange the cupcakes on a plate, and add cut green licorice twists to look like stems.
