How to Make Flower Cupcakes

Learn how to make flower cupcakes from from the experts at Butter Lane Bakery in this Howcast food video.


I'm going to show you how to make flower cupcakes. This one is really simple but really, really pretty. I'm going to start with a pastry bag with a large star tip filled with white buttercream. You could put whatever color you want. This is just the base that the flower is going to sit on. With this, I'm going to start in the middle. I'm going to hover over the cupcake a little bit, and just go in a circle. Just keep spiraling until the cupcake is covered.

Then, I'm going to take my second bag. This has a petal tip on it, and the narrow tip is always facing up and that fatter end is always down. This is so when you pipe your petals, they'll be nice and delicate and fragile. We're going to start with the fatter end right in the center of our cupcake. With an arching motion, you're going to apply pressure, go outward, and come back exactly where you started. That's one petal. You're going to do the same thing. My petal tip is on a 45 degree angle just to create some height for my petals to make it nice. I'm going to do five.

Then with our third pastry bag, there's black buttercream in here and a small round tip. With this, I'm just going to put a little dot in the center to create the center of the flower. That's it, simple and pretty. That's how you make flower cupcakes.
