Hello, friends…I hope you had a nice weekend.

I’ve mentioned before that a baker I am not, but I’ve had this idea in my head for a while now and wanted to see how it would turn out. Well, they didn’t turn out as cute as I had envisioned, but I do have a good excuse as to why.

Let me give you a little back story….
I thought that this idea would be perfect for this month’s Michaels challenge and since they have a great section for cake baking and decorating, I headed over and picked up several icing tips and other supplies. I was eager to get started and baked the cupcakes as soon as I got home. While they were cooling I prepared my little tray (also from Michaels) colored my icing in various shades of peach and just as I was getting ready to fill my piping bags with the icing, I realized I had forgotten one of the bags at the cash register and of course it was the one with the tips that I needed. Womp, womp, womp…

Because it was later in the day, the store was about to close and because I’m impatient, I decided to proceed with the decorating of my cupcakes using the only tip I had. Which happened to be one that was much smaller than I wanted to.

I wanted them to look a little more like hydrangeas, but I think they still look ok, no?

I filled the piping bag with various shades of pinks and peaches and even a little bit of green and piped several little buds onto the cupcakes…

I picked up this cute little tray at Michaels and placed some foam at the bottom…

I then covered the foam with moss ribbon…

And inserted a few faux leaves here and there…

I used some skewers and poked them through the bottom of the cupcake and inserted them onto the foam…

I think these would make an adorable gift for Mother’s day, a baby shower, or a garden party.

I also painted some painterly flowers and made them into Mother’s day cards…

    They are really pretty and I love the cute presentation. My Mother has long passed away but my daughter’s birthday often falls on the same day – she would love this. Thank you, Lucy!

    Well, I think they turned out pretty darn cute! and you didn’t even need to mention leaving the decorating tips at the store.

    The cupcakes look fantastic — very professional given that you claim not to be a baker. I’m so inspired by your art and visual presentation. It’s such a pleasure getting a peak into your creative process! Thank you.

    Beautiful cupcakes and display. I immediately thought they looked like hydrangeas which are my mom’s favorite flower. I may try to recreate for her birthday. Out of curiosity what tip did you plan to use?

    These are so pretty! I love the idea of doing hydrangeas! I see a lot of piped rose cupcakes but this is the first time I’ve seen flower cupcakes like these!

    My dad passed away on March 20th so Mother’s Day will be sad without my dad there to help us celebrate. He and mom were married for 66 years last Oct. Dad was 93 and mom will be 90 in July. I can’t imagine my mom not being here anymore.
    I love your cupcakes! They look so pretty! My grandmother had a kind of silver thing that you filled and put tips on it for decorating, like a cake decorator I guess. I love to use it. I have that tip you used. I love the whole display!
    That card you made is beautiful and I can’t wait to print it out. Since I make my own greeting cards I may have to put my spin on your card like some sequins or something else. I’ll let you see it if I do anything to it. It’s so beautiful and I love water colors. My Twinkling H2O’s are the best watercolors ever!
    Thank you for the printable card. I will put it to good use.

    Thanks for hosting the Inspiration Gallery Party. I love how your hydrangea cupcakes turned out. The way you loaded your piping bags with multiple icing colors was very professional. And the presentation in the moss and greenery covered tray was adorable. Cake decorating is my hobby and I made a rose and hydrangea cupcake bouquet in a flower pot for my mother for her birthday a couple of years ago, so I know what is involved. Great job!
