I started making these sunflower cupcakes when I decided I wanted to improve my frosting decoration skills. Piping intricate designs has never been my forte but I vowed to improve my abilities. I had been extremely intimidated by cake and cupcake decorating but once I began I was pleasantly surprised with how EASY it wasis to create beautifully decorated confections. And you will be too! It all started with the courage to TRY.

Tell Me About These Sunflower Cupcakes
Flavor _The pictured cupcakes are vanilla cupcakes and we recommend the vanilla buttercream detailed below. Its creamy but sturdy enough to hold the detailed sunflower shape. If youre looking for other cupcake flavor options try pumpkin cupcakes chocolate cupcakes or apple cupcakes.
Ease_ I promise buttercream sunflowers are nothing fancy or complicated. Just make sure you have the right tools listed below and that the butter is brought to room temperature before you begin making the frosting. Room temperature butter is imperative for the consistency and success of the buttercream.


Time _After you have baked and cooled your cupcakes set aside a little over 30 minutes to make and pipe the frosting.
