Flower Pot Cupcakes

My latest recipe to share is these super simple FlowerPot Cupcakes. They look seriously effective and can easily be achieved with the right tools!

They would be a great last minute Mother’s Day gift or a gift for anyone really, or just for yourself like mine were.

The silicone Flowerpot Cases are the key to the flower pot cupcakes and I got mine from HobbyCraft but I also think they are avaliable from Lakeland and Amazon. These were a 12 pack which is perfect.

The recipe I used was a basic vanilla cupcake recipe that I use all the time that can be found – HEREIt’s a nice simple recipe that works really well. I did however double the recipe so that it was for 24 cupcakes as the flower pot cases are slightly bigger. I filled them so that they mix was a little under the pot line and there was a bit of mix left over but they wouldn’t have risen enough had I only used mix for 12 cakes.

The frosting recipe I used like the cupcakes is the one I use all the time which you can find HERE.  Again I doubled it up so there was enough to be used for piping, I find it always uses more when you pipe so I’d rather have enough than run out and need to make another batch. I used gel food colouring, just a drop of green as I wanted a pastel colour and I’m really happy with how it turned out. Always add a little at a time as with the gel colouring you really do not need much before the colour gets pretty intense!

For the flower decorations to go on top of the Flowerpot Cupcakes I used some ready made fondant icing in white then coloured some pink and some yellow which is easily done with food colouring. It’s a bit like colouring playdough just a slow process.

I did play around a bit making some roses and other bits and bobs but in the end I kept it nice and simple with Daisy cutter I have in various sizes. I don’t have many tools for fondant icing as it’s not my strong point although I insist on using it for Amelia’s birthday cakes so I nabbed a few of Amelia’s playdough tools which worked perfectly; a rolling pin and a cutter!

I did all the cutting of the icing and kept all the flowers on a plate so that they were all ready to be used for decoration. I didn’t do them all exactly the same and just added flowers here and then as I went but I’m really happy with the results. The final touch was a some edible glitter for the extra touch!

I think overall the Flowerpot Cupcakes look more effective than it actually takes to make them. And as I mentioned above it is achievable with the right tools, equipment and some patience!! I love how these look and will definitely be making them again and trying out some different designs; crushed biscuit as soil, different flowers and different colours.
