I was surfing the net awhile ago and saw a beautiful cupcake made by
The Pastry Studio. I contacted them to use their cupcake as inspiration for
a tutorial and they said yes!
This is the photo that I found. I love how they mix the
pearls and nonpareils. Makes it look really delicate
I don’t know the steps they used in making these
cupcakes, so I will show you how I would make
them. I didn’t have different sizes of pearls so
I used nonpareils, sugar pearls and sugar
crystals. But I do love the bigger pearls they
used in their cupcakes.
For this particular flower you will need 2 five petal cutters. I used the 2 biggest ones on this PME 5 Petal CutterSet.
The flower is not difficult to make. If you are not used to making gumpaste flowers, this is a great way to learn.
When I make cakes, I know I need to move
fast. Spending too much time in a single detail is not a great idea when you are trying to earn some money. This is something I keep in mind when I teach. We want pretty and we want fast.
This is the reason why I mention the tools
I use that help me to move fast when I do tutorials.
I used a Celformer to shape this flower. This is one of those tools that I love and make my flower making a bit easier. I cover them in foil so I can reuse the former as I dry the flowers I already made.
The tutorial is very detailed. You can also
add more detail to the flower with petal dust
if you want to take it to another level. I didn’t
do the petal dust in the tutorial because I wanted to show the simplified version of the flower.
Some people will say this is a lot of work for a cupcake and yes it can be. So make sure to charge well for the work you do. The other option will be to mix this cupcake with others that have a more simple design. The flower can also be used in cakes.
No matter how you end up using it, this is a great flower to learn. I hope you
enjoy the Tutorial. Click on the photo to go watch full Tutorial.
