Sunflower Oreo Cupcakes
Even though as I sit here writing this post there is snow on the ground, we are past the first day of spring. And spring means...flowers! My aunt posted a picture of these cute cupcakes on my facebook page awhile ago and I thought this weekend would be the perfect time to try them. I believe the picture that she sent me is from Fowl Single File. (Took awhile to chase the links). I simplified her version a little bit and only used one type of piping tip because I am kind of lazy.
To start with, twist an Oreo in half. Squirt some frosting on the bottom part of the cookie and "glue" it to the middle of the cooled cupcake. Using a Wilton #67 tip (a leaf tip) pipe petals all around the Oreo. When I used the half of the Oreo with the filling stuck to it, I needed to pipe petals two rows high or my Oreo would show.
I used a batch of this buttercream tinted yellow on plain vanilla cupcakes. This should make enough to frost 2 dozen cupcakes.
