I had to share a project from this past summer. A beautiful, wonderful couple who are friends of mine were married and I had the distinct pleasure of making cupcakes for their rehearsal dinner. Of course, I didn’t want them to just taste good…I also wanted them to look spectacular! Taking a lesson from “Hello, Cupcake” – I went ahead and used their design for flower cupcakes.
The project was more of an undertaking than expected as the whole process is 100% time-consuming…but I think you’ll agree that the end result was perfection.
Instructions for Decorating:
1 bag of mini marshmallows;
Variety of colored sugar (or you can DIY by adding food coloring to regular sugar and tossing it together in a Ziplock bag);
Candied Sunflower Seeds (for center);
…lots of free time!
Cut the mini marshmallows in half on the diagonal and press the sticky side into the sugar. Starting from the outside and working your way in, arrange the marshmallows on top of the frosted cupcakes like petals. In the center of each, place a few candied sunflower seeds and you got yourself some edible flowers!
