From the slide show – a few extra instructions you might need for 2 of the ideas:

Easy Icing Flower CupcakesTo make the Easy Icing Flowers:

For the blue flowers: Using a Wilton 12 tip, make a mound in the center of your cupcake. Then use a Wilton 16 tip to make a small cluster of long star shapes out the top. Then starting around the bottom middle, use Wilton tip 18 to make the petals. Work around in a circle and then make another row above until you come to the top.

For the shaggy flowers: Make your leaf shapes with a leaf tip (Wilton 352 will do). Then use a multi-opening tip (Wilton 233) to make the shaggy petals. Start from the outside and make a circle. Then make another circle further in, until the whole cupcake is filled.

For the pink and blue cupcake: Add a few leaves and use a star tip to create small flowers around the cupcake. Use a small round decorator tip to add a dot to the center to the flowers (Wilton 3).

Sunflower CupcakeFor the Sunflower Cupcakes: These look tricky, but it’s a little deceptive. All you need is a dab of icing on the top of the cupcake, topped with an oreo cookie. Then a leaf tip (Wilton 352) will create the leaves on the bottom. Top with 2 more rows of yellow leaves. Add a little ladybug royal icing accent as the finishing touch.

The rest of the ideas are in the slide show. Hope you enjoy!
