STEP 1 Bake your favorite flavor cupcakes in Cake Mate® Tulip Cupcake Liners.

STEP 2 Spread a small amount of white icing on the top of the cupcake & coat with the Polka Dot Nonpareils.

STEP 3 To decorate the White Flower Cupcake:

  • Using the white tube icing & #352 tip, make a large ring of leaves around the cupcake. Make another layer of leaves on top of the first layer.
  • Using the yellow tube icing & #18 tip, make a small rosette for the center of the flower.

STEP 4 To decorate the Pink Rose Bud Cupcake:

  • Using the pink tube icing & #97 tip, create 3 short squiggle lines towards the top of the cupcake.
  • Using the green tube icing & #3 tip, create the stems by drawing a line from the base of the pink squiggles.

STEP 5 To decorate the Yellow Rose Cupcake:

  • Using the yellow tube icing & #104 tip, place the wide end of the tip towards the cupcake. Spin the cupcake in a full circle to make a cone shape.
  • Make each petal a little bit higher than the center & make each petal a 1/3 of the circumference of the rose center so they alternate.

Celebrate & Enjoy!
