There’s more than one way to make a CHERRY BLOSSOM…and we’ve crafted the petals 2 ways to prove it! We made these gorgeous Cherry Blossom Cupcakes for our newest book Make It Easy, Cupcake! They are so easy to make in 4 SIMPLE STEPS! We piped pink candy melts into small cocktail spoons to make the petals. For the branches we piped lines of chocolate frosting from a ziptop bag on top of cupcakes frosted in sky blue. To create the blossoms we placed 5 petals in a tight cluster and added pale pink frosting and yellow sprinkles to the center.
See the 4-STEP PHOTOS below…so easy to follow!
We wanted to change the blossoms for our monthly column in Woman’s World Magazine so we changed the technique and made the petals by snipping mini pink marshmallows in half and spraying them with pearl food color. The result is quite different but we think equally stunning. You can find the complete recipe for this version on the newstand now!
So next time you set out to craft cupcakes remember that there are many ways to solve the design…and it’s so much fun finding out how!
Our newest book Make It Easy, Cupcake! has over 100 SIMPLE 4-STEP DESIGNS that are just as easy and just as much fun as our CHERRY BLOSSOM CUPCAKES!
