Hello Lovelies. I want to share with you some of the buttercream flower cakes and cupcakes I have been making lately. I am by no means accomplished in this skill but have been enjoying practising these pretty little flowers and putting them on cakes for friends and family. I use Swiss Meringue Buttercream, as it tastes silky smooth, isn’t as sweet as standard buttercream and is very stable to work with. I love the versatility of using different colours to create varying moods. I try really hard to do pastel, as it’s super pretty and feminine, but somehow those drops of food gel just squeeze themselves out of the bottle and jump right into my icing! I am so passionate about bright colours that I can rarely manage subtle hues, even though I totally appreciate their beauty. These cupcakes are about as close as I get, which is ok. That’s just me.
I am looking forward to creating more flowers and honing this new skill which has oh so much creative potential. I hope you enjoy looking through some of my first attempts at these sweet beauties.
