Intro: Oreo Sunflower Cupcakes (m&m Ladybug)
Who doesn't love oreos and cupcakes? It is this easy to brighten someones day. I love making these cupcakes. They are so easy and fun. Even though I really love oreos and cupcakes, my favorite part is the adorable, simple red m&m ladybug.
Step 1: You Will Need...
Black food gel color
Leaf tip #352
Grass tip #233 (optional)
2 piping bags
Pick out he red m&ms. Dip you tiny paintbrush into a little black food coloring. Paint the little head and draw a line down the middle of the back. Then make a few dots and both sides of the the line. Voila, you have a cute little ladybug.
Cut off the dome of all of your cupcakes. Pipe a little icing to keep the oreo in place. Put the oreo on the top of the cupcake.
Prepare some yellow icing (medium consistency) with a leaf tip #352. Squeeze, pull, and let go. Repeat this around the whole oreo. If you want you can practice this method on a plate or something. Then on top of that layer of petals do another, making the petals a little smaller. Then pipe the last layer of petals a little on top of the oreo.(right inside the little ridge) Then just place you cute little ladybug on top of the flower.
If you want you can pipe some green grass around the cupcakes to finish it off. I think it looks nice to add some more color.
