Ingredients

To decorate:

  • cupcakes, coated in buttercream
  • sugarpaste: green, pink, blue
  • cornflour
  • edible dust: pink, green

Equipment:

  • water and paintbrush
  • cake smoother
  • basic toolkit
  • 8.5 cm cookie cutter
  • palette knives: mini and regular

Instructions

  1. Roll out blue sugarpaste, then cut a straight-edged blue circle and lay it on top of the buttercream-covered cupcake. Smooth over the top with a cake smoother.

  2. Roll out 4 small balls of green sugarpaste into tubes for stems, then use a smoother to apply pressure for an even, delicate stem.

  3. Glue stems randomly on the bottom of the cupcake, then trim to the edge of the cupcake.

  4. Roll 4 more green balls of paste and roll into teardrops, then flatten, score down the centre with a palette knife and glue them in between the stems.

  5. Roll out 4 -5 smaller pink balls of paste and roll into bulbous teardrops. Glue on top of the stems, then score down the centre.

  6. Using edible dust, lightly dust the base of the leaves with green dust and then the tulips with pink dust, to finish.
