Fall Chrysanthemum Cupcakes
Chrysanthemums are the flower of the season.
1. Color three shades of icing. Use Lucks Sunset Orange Liqua-Gel Color with a drop of Lucks Brown Liquid Airbrush Color for the burnt orange. Use Lucks Egg Shade Liquid Airbrush Color and a drop of brown for the yellow. Use Lucks Green Liquid Airbrush Color and a drop of brown for the darker green shade.
2. First, fill a bag with the green using a #3 plain round tube. Then lighten up the rest of the green by adding more white icing. Fill three bags with the lighter green, yellow and burnt orange icings, using a #79 decorating tube.
3. Ice the cupcakes and then pipe on green leaves as shown. Pipe on the flowers in contrasting colors on each cupcake.
Tip: For making beautiful flowers, remember to keep the same center as you pipe the petals around in a circle.
