  1. Bake and cool cupcakes using a recipe of your choice, or use store bought ones.
  2. Prepare a batch of my buttercream, links above, and colour using natural or gel colours.  For natural colours, mix powders with a tiny bit of warm water until you get a thick paste before use.
  3. Divide the buttercream into piping bags fitted with the appropriate tips.
  4. Pipe large flowers such as rosebuds, chrysanthemum and blossoms onto parchment paper and freeze solid.
  5. Squeeze a little buttercream on to the cupcakes, and begin to assemble using the frozen flowers.
  6. Fill space by piping more flowers as shown in the video
  7. add round buds or small peaks around the flowers to cover all the bare cake.
  8. Accentuate with buttercream leaves.

That should be all you need to know to make your own flower garden cupcakes 🙂  Thank you for watching and stay tuned for the next in the series, coming soon!

      hi, the ingredients for the buttercream or the natural colourings? Either way you probably can – for the buttercream use the milk or yoghurt version (second blog post link), for the blueberry and beetroot you can use fresh blueberries or beetroots and puree them then sieve out the pulp to get coloured liquid. If you can’t find matcha try spinach juice, made the same way I described. Or you could just use gel colours. You could also try amazon for your country, you may find more than you expect. Good luck!
