Pretty Flower Cupcakes for Mother's Day

 “If I had a flower for every time I thought of you...I could walk through my garden forever.”
- Alfred Tennyson
 

I just love flowers, and decided to make these flower cupcakes for Mother's Day.
Delicious AND pretty, they are sure to put a smile on Mom's face. :)
They would be perfect for a brunch or special dinner for mom.

What You Will Need:
Cooled cupcakes
Buttercream frosting
Decorating bag
Wilton #104 tip
Sugar pearls

The #104 tip I used is a thin teardrop shape.
Hold your decorating bag with the larger end of the tip on the bottom,
with the teardrop parallel to the top of your cupcake.


Starting at the center of the cupcake, squeeze the decorating bag while
moving the tip in an upward motion, then back down again - making an upside down U shape.
You just piped your first petal!


Rotate your cupcake as you continue to pipe petals,
until the cupcake is covered.


Pipe another layer of petals on top,
slightly smaller this time.


Place a cluster of sugar pearls in the center of your flower,
pressing them gently into the frosting.
(Please don't ask where I got the nifty tweezers with teeth...
they came from my husband's extensive tool collection!)


These flower cupcakes look lovely served on little china saucers.


Happy Mother's Day!
