Hi, my name is Elizabeth Sutton. I am one of the head decorators here at Amanda Oakleaf Cakes. I really enjoy working here and being a cake decorator and more specifically, cupcake decorator. You can come, visit us at our at 1 Pauline Street, Winthrop, Massachusetts and you can also visit our website at oakleafcakes.com. And today, I’m going to be talking to you about cupcake decorating. I’m going to be showing you how to make some simple drop flowers on the top of your cupcakes. You want to do this with 2 different colors; you can use the same size piping tip, just a round tip. The bigger you go, the bigger the center and the petals will be for your flowers. So we’re going to give these flowers white petals. So I usually give a couple on my cupcakes. So you know, just sprinkle them middle around, so that can be the middle of your flowers. Basically what you want to do is that you want to squeeze out little drops around the center to make pretty and pretty petals. You can make your petals different sizes by adding more pressure. And even if you want to move your tip in a different way like this, you can give your petals different shapes. If you have space leftover, you can just add another flower. It’s okay if they overlap. You can even incorporate different colors so that you can have a couple of different types of petals, different colored petals, different colored middles. Basically you got different flowers on your cupcake. And that is how you make simple job flowers.
