Today's offerings are flower cupcakes.
First up is Amazing Cupcakes and Treats.
Simone came to the Cakeriffic expo and had lots of examples of flower cupcakes - she also demonstrated how to do them with buttercream piping.
I love the yellow and orange of these ones finished with the tiny pearl doodads (cannot remember what they are called):
These hydrangea cupcakes were also gorgeous:
And a beautiful basket of roses:
Another method for adding flower decoration is to make fondant flowers as in this example from Cakes by Josephine based in Cairnlea Vic:
And how pretty are these pale yellow flowers on cupcakes from Boutique Sweets by Anna in Taylors Hill, Vic.
It's difficult to see in this photo but they have a dusting of pearl glitter powder. Simple, beautiful.
It's raining here, however I hope you all have a great day and stop to smell the roses.
I have two very big apricot-coloured roses on my standard rose this morning - very happy about that.
