Hello Cupcake!

I picked up a couple cupcake decorating books a while back and Miranda and I have been dying to try some of the adorable creations out. Today on a whim, and because Miranda has been bored, we decided to try the sunflower cupcakes.
They start off with just a basic cupcake in a green cup (aren't the polka dots so cute!)
Then just frost them smooth with green icing
After that you set mini and regular oreos on top and off to the side.
Then using yellow and orange striped icing you pipe a double row of petals using a leaf tip around each oreo
We used fruit roll ups and a leaf cookie cutter to create the leaves
The adorable lady-bugs are just M&M's and black frostingSuper easy, super cute and just a bit time consuming but it was well worth it for such adorable cupcakes! We delivered them to a few families and they all loved them!
Now...what to try next?
