Minature Flower Communion Cupcakes

My niece was making her first communion this year, so I was asked by my sister to make some cupcakes for the party. I so wished I had taken better pictures.

Note to self: Take better flippin pictures!

Now with that out of the way let me tell you about these delish little delights. First I had made three flavors; the standard fare of chocolate and vanilla, but for a little pop I added in red velvet. For the icing I kept it a standard vanilla frosting across the board, I have found that often times kids don't like anything more than chocolate and vanilla, when it comes to both cupcake flavor and/or frosting.

I had actually discovered with this type of flowery design when I was making the feathers for the big bird miniature cupcakes for my daughters birthday. I'm not really sure if its a "technique" with a name, but all the miniature cupcakes were decorated with it, giving it a look much like a miniature flowery bouquet.

I alternated between a plain white frosting and a soft pink. The larger cupcakes were adorned with a larger soft pink swirl, sprinkled with iridescent white pearls. As always everyone loves cupcakes, even the older folks were munching down on them and of course they were delicious!
