Floral cupcake decorating ideas need not be difficult. People often feel that floral themed cakes and cupcakes or even cookies are time consuming and require a more advanced level of cake decorating skill set.
But that need not be the case at all. Well, at least for me. I love cake and cupcake decorating, but the amount of time I put into any project would really depend on the occasion the cakes or cupcakes are made for (only when I am baking on a personal account. Its different when I bake for customers, the decision on the design would depend on my customers and their budget).
For instance, if I am baking and decorating a cake or cupcakes of a picnic or simple tea get together with family, I would prefer a simpler and less time consuming decorating ideas because I know we are there more for eating and having a good time as compared to a birthday party or a baby shower party where the intention is to celebrate someone, and therefore I don’t mind putting in for time for the person we are celebrating for, to make him or her feel special and appreciated.
So, here are a few easy floral cupcake decorating ideas I have created before. I personally like floral themed decoration for cakes and cupcakes, so I have a tendency to choose this theme more than others when I am decorating without any special requests from anyone.
These cupcakes were decorated with a few different types of flowers. If you can see, most of these flowers are often used as filler flowers, meaning they are normally not the main flowers on a cake or cupcakes but rather are used to complement the main flowers.
I always have these filler flowers on hand, either left overs for another cake or cupcake project or extras that I normally make in advance to use for rush orders.
These are a list of flowers that went onto these cupcakes and a little description on how I made them:
Here is how I made the cupcakes:
Assembling the cupcakes was fairly easy. I tried to create different sets of floral designs. The first set was a combination of the pink royal icing flowers and mini daisies. I balanced the size of the larger pink flowers and mini daisies by having a few daisies grouped together on a single cupcake compared to the pink flowers which were placed individually on each cupcake.
The second set had a combination of all the mini flowers, i.e. the mini daisies and mini 5 petal flowers. I mixed and matched the flowers so that each cupcake had a balance of all the colors of the flowers.
For the third set, I tried having one large flower and one mini flower on each cupcake, so I had a set of large and mini daisies on some cupcakes while the others cupcakes had the pink royal icing flower and mini 5 petals flower. These flowers were set on ivory buttercream covered cupcakes. I also added a buttercream leaf for the pink royal icing flower to give the cupcakes a hint of the color green in its decoration.
And that’s it. I hope you enjoyed this easy floral cupcake decorating idea.
