Sunflower Cupcakes

sunflower cupcakes
by Joanne Clifton
Take any flavor cupcake and cover it with chocolate frosting. Take a leaf tip and give it two rows of yellow leaves, the second row in between the first and elevated slightly.

Take a small round cutter like the smallest one of the three of Wilton's set and use it to place chocolate jimmies in the center of the cupcakes and push them into the center icing to represent the seeds.

Then use another leaf tip with green icing to add some green leaves here and there.
