Remember the cupcake book giveaway I posted about yesterday?
There was a page with some beautiful flower cupcakes among others, right? Well I gave them a try and they came out great.
But before showing them to you, I have to mention that I have seen them made on an amazing blog, Mari's cakes. She used them to make a flower basket cake. it looked amazing!!!! Please make sure you visit her page. She is amazing and she shares lots and lots of recipes and decorating techniques.
Mari I love your work and your blog!!
So this is my step by step flower cupcake tutorial.
For a Spanish version, please go to Mari's flower basket cake post.
This is what I have used: mini white marshmallows, colored sugar, cupcakes, eatable pearls, royal icing
The first thing you should do is cut the mini marshmallows in half, diagonally.
Then press the cut side of the marshmallow into the colored sugar.
The inside part of the marshmallow is sticky and the sugar crystals will stick to it with no problem.
Then cover your cupcake with icing. I used royal icing ( egg white+ confectioner's sugar)
Then place the marshmallows on the cupcake one by one, starting with the bottom layer.
Continue to put them on the cupcake until you cover it completely.
When you finish covering the cupcake you will have this beautiful flower.
Don't you think they look amazing?
