Learn to create two amazing piped flower cupcake designs using just one piping nozzle!
Piping frosting is a simple skill to master but when you do, it is a doorway to so much more in cake decorating. This blog shows you how to create two piped flowers using Renshaw Vanilla Frosting. The first flower is a wonderful elegant Rose design and the second is a Hydrangea style, both of which are perfect for topping cupcakes with!
To achieve a Rose design, start by using a 2D nozzle in your piping bag. Once you have added your nozzle and frosting to the bag, begin at the centre of the cupcake and apply constant pressure as you pipe in a circle, gradually moving outwards towards the outer edge of the cupcake.
To achieve the Hydrangea design, hold your piping bag vertically over the cupcake, press gently down with the piping bag and begin to pipe, then lift the bag straight up and release pressure. Repeat this process until the cupcake has been filled, this will leave you with your beautiful Hydrangea design.
Have a go at piping these easy designs at home, and once you have mastered these two effective designs why not put your cupcakes together in a cupcake bouquet or display them neatly on a cupcake stand!
