Learn how to decorate pull apart cupcakes with this easy-to-follow tutorial by Neetha Syam from Buttercream Petals Art School.
Create this eye-catching, floral 'pull apart' masterpiece using buttercream and piping techniques...
- piping bags
- flower nail
- Wilton 104 nozzle
- Wilton 352 nozzle
- Wilton 47 nozzle
1. Divide and colour the buttercream using gel colours of your choice. 2. Using one colour of buttercream in a piping bag fitted with a Wilton 104 nozzle, pipe a cone in the middle of the flower nail. Pipe three curved upright petals around the cone, forming a small hole in the middle. This is the bud of the rose. Pipe more curved petals around the bud to form a small rose. You can pipe more layers of petals to make bigger roses, if you wish. 3. Continue to pipe roses in your choice of different colours; I used five different shades. 4. Arrange the cupcakes in your desired shape – I used a 1, 2, 3, 2 arrangement. 5. Put the chocolate buttercream in a piping bag fitted with the Wilton 47 nozzle, then pipe basket weaves on the bottom section to create a basket effect. 6. Pipe leaf petals in between the gaps using a Wilton 352 nozzle. 7. Freeze the piped roses for 15 minutes, then arrange them on the cupcakes. Pipe more leaves in between any gaps. 8. Finish off by piping a ribbon around the basket using the Wilton 104 nozzle. Stand back and admire your pull apart cupcakes!
