  • Bake your cupcakes in damask grease-proof cupcake liners.  Use several different colors. 
  • Color your buttercream by using both green and yellow Wilton gel coloring.  Add a small dollop of both colors to your buttercream and combine with a spatula until uniform.
  • Fit your disposable piping bag with the Wilton #1M tip.  Fill the bag with buttercream.
  • Using this technique, pipe a swirl of frosting onto each cupcake.
  • Sprinkle sugar sprinkles onto each cupcake and top with a royal icing flower.  Use the same color sprinkles as the flower you are topping the cupcake with.
