Hydrangea Cupcakes

Can you tell which one is the cupcake? These hydrangea cupcakes made a great statement at a pink-themed bridal shower!

To make the hydrangea petals look realistic I painted the inside of the piping bag with concentrated pink colour and then filled the bag with plain white buttercream. The result is pretty white petals with bright swirls of pink along the edges.

I have a wedding coming up where I’ll be doing an entire wedding cake of hydrangea cupcakes in the blueish-purple colouring to match the flowers of the bridal party, so this was a great opportunity to test it out!

I just had to hold one up next to the real hydrangeas because I was so impressed with how this technique made them look so much like the real thing!
