When planning this weeks video tutorial I realised it has been so long since I featured any buttercream flowers on my YouTube channel and even longer since I had piped any cupcakes, which is one of my favourite things to do. So in this weeks video tutorial I’m going to do a variation of a rose cupcake what I filmed a few years ago, but update it with slightly more advanced buttercream roses. Also as its nearing the end of October I thought I would create the cupcakes in a range of Autumnal colours to make them perfect for this time of year.
Piping the Buttercream Flowers
So these cupcakes have 6 buttercream roses on each, 3 larger ones using the #104 piping tip and 3 slightly smaller ones using the #102 piping tip. The roses are piped onto a flower nail and transferred onto the cupcakes once they have been chilled in the fridge to firm up the buttercream rather than piping them directly onto the cupcakes. They are then finished off with pretty flower buds and green leaves giving the appearance that they are each a mini bouquet of flowers.
I really loved how these cupcakes turned out and think they would look perfect in any colour combination. If you wanted to create the cupcakes with a little less buttercream you could add just the larger flowers and fill the rest of the space with the smaller flowerbuds.
For these cupcakes you will need quite a firm buttercream and you can find the recipe I used in my tutorial section. I really hope you like the cupcakes and if you would like to watch the full tutorial just click on the video below:
