There are four videos in this series of using one DIY piping rose tip to make different flower cupcakes.
When I teach decorating classes, this is the students favorite cupcake to decorate.
I love this how this cupcake looks with the beautiful swirls the tip makes. You can’t go wrong in decorating as the tip does it for you. As you will see in my video, you just glide the tip across the cupcakes (starting in the middle). It really is a fail-proof decorating tip.
Using a freezer bag and tape, you create these gorgeous and yummy cupcakes. We have lots of recipes for you to choose from. Our buttercream recipe is below.
Change the color to make a variety of flowers for different special occasions. Red for Valentines Day, Orange for autumn, yellow for spring and Mother’s day or friendship, Blue and Pink for baby shower, white or ivory for wedding or bridal shower, purple for girls party. The options are endless beauty.
