Yellow Flower Cupcake Basket

This basket has red velvet and chocolate cupcakes. The toppers on the chocolate cupcakes were made using the Russian piping tips I purchased from Amazon after seeing them on Pinterest and  YouTube. The hardest part is getting the frosting to the right consistency. Once that is achieved, the piping isn’t hard at all. I am still working to mastering the different types of flowers.

Coconut Rum cupcakes 

I have been asked a few times to make some rum cupcakes. Although I am not a fan of boozed up cupcakes, I decided to give them a try. I had some left over coconut cupcakes. I mixed some rum with some powdered sugar to make a glaze. I then took a toothpick and poked holes in the tops of the cupcakes and poured the glaze over the cupcakes. I then made some coconut butter cream frosting and added rum to it. Whala!

My fancy Flower design Frosting 

This is my interpretation of a fancy flower design. I used the orange and white frosting and was trying to get the white on the ends. I think they look ok but I need to work on the technique a bit more. Please like and or leave comments.

Carrot Cupcakes 

These cupcakes are loaded with carrots. I have been experimenting with different piping tools and mixing colors for frosting cupcakes. I want the cupcakes to look noticeably different although a lot of the cupcakes have cream cheese frosting. I think I will also use a different piping tip for them next time I make them. Previously, I used larger gummy carrot pieces as toppers and I see that these mini candy carrots I used on these cupcakes are much smaller than I expected.
