Whimsical Flower Cupcakes

Yield:
12 whimsical cupcakes
Ingredients
  • 24 Go-To Vanilla Cupcakes
  • 2 cups Swiss Buttercream
  • 1/2 cup Grapefruit-Tinted Frosting
  • 1/4 cup Egg Yolk-Tinted Frosting
Directions
  • Special Equipment: 2 Pastry bags; Ateco #10 round tip; Ateco #2 small round tip

  • Frost the cupcakes with the buttercream.

  • To pipe the flower: Place the grapefruit-tinted frosting in a pastry bag with a #10 round tip. Hold the bag straight above the cupcake. To create a 5-petal flower, start 1/2 inch from the edge, and squeeze and release while dragging toward the center of the cupcake to create a tear-shaped petal. Rotate the cupcake slightly after each petal.

  • Place the egg yolk-tinted frosting in a pastry bag with a #2 small round tip. Hold the bag straight up, and pipe a small dot into the center of the flower.

  • Repeat with the remaining cupcakes.
