Hydrangea Cupcakes

For my niece, Sarah’s, bridal shower, I wanted to see how difficult it was to make cupcakes decorated to resemble hydrangeas (one of the flower’s in her bouquet). So I found a youtube by Rosie Cake-Diva (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDOfoHxhxeA), picked up some gel food coloring, the Wilton 2D tip, some decorating bags, a Jiffy cake mix, powdered sugar, butter and shortening and made a dozen. The icing is Wilton’s buttercream icing (http://www.wilton.com/recipe/Buttercream-Icing) and is enough for 12 cupcakes. This is how they turned out…not bad for a first try.

The edible “pearls” make all the difference, IMO. I found these in the aisle with the cake mixes rather than with the cake decorating supplies (which are bigger than I wanted).

We will be making 72 :)….
