Just finished these sweet cupcakes today for a little girl who is turning 5. The request was to make them as girlie as possible. Hope they are girlie enough for her.
I really love these cupcake liners. They are from Michaels Craft Store
Vanilla bean cupcakes. Cooling while I make the icing
I used a wilton 1M tip for the swirl. The icing is vanilla buttercream
The butterflies are plastic rings that I found at McCalls Cake Supply store, I thought it would be fun for the girls to have them after they eat their cupcake. I also used royal icing roses, sugar pearls, pink sprinkles, pink sugar and silver dragees for decoration.
I hope the birthday girl will love them. I know I would be excited if someone brought me these for my birthday :)
