How To: Sunflower Cupcakes

I had some leftover cake batter from making this Double Banana Birthday Cake, so I decided to make my team some banana nut cupcakes! I had never used my leaf frosting tip before, and decided it was time to change that. After a little research regarding technique, I took a shot at making some frosting sunflowers! Β I used mini Oreos forΒ the center of the sunflowers, and used about 5/6 of my left over cake frosting to make theΒ yellow frosting for the petals. I colored the remaining bit of frosting green to make leaves. I prefer gel food coloring (because it doesn’t throw off the consistency of the frosting), but if you are in a pinch you can use liquid food coloring and just add in a bit more powdered sugar to your frosting to thicken it. It is actually a lot easier than you’d think. It’s amazing what you can learn on YouTube πŸ˜€
