Bring On Spring!

Okay so maybe it’s a little early for Spring wishes. But I can’t help but hope for an early Spring when I look at these cupcakes. These are my practice cupcakes after the second and third class of the Wilton Method Course 2: Flowers and Cake Design.

Apple blossoms:

Primroses:

And pink violets:

The cupcakes are a red velvet recipe, but with purple dye instead – so purple velvet? Sounds royal. I topped each cupcake off with almond buttercream.

I’m a big fan of these dainty flowers, I’d love to make hundreds and cover a wedding cake with them someday. In the meantime, I’ll keep hoping for an early Spring and weather over 40 degrees!

    Thank you! I was pretty happy with how easy the flowers were to make and how cute they looked on a cupcake. It’ll definitely work as my go-to cupcake topper for now!

  3. These look amazing, and your photography is spectacular! I wish you had taken a picture of the inside of the purple velvet… how positively royal!

    Thank you! And yes, I agree, a picture of the red velvet should have been in order!
