When you have a client who loves Sunflowers, what do you do?
Why, you make these fun Sunflower Cupcakes! The client said she wanted a special sweet treat; something simple and that screams summer. She also mentioned her favorite flower was a sunflower. For flavor I went with moist Lemon Cake with Vanilla Buttercream. Very summer indeed!
The decorating of these cupcakes was very fun as well. I started with a ring of piped yellow flower “leaves” and then added an Oreo to the center and continued to pipe leaves around the cookie until the sides were covered. Once done with the flower leaves, I accented with a few green stem leaves.
To top it off I added a little red M&M ladybug. This was the perfect touch to contrast with the yellow and its super cute to boot!
I heard later that the client loved how the cookies were decorated and that they were a hit with her entire family!
