Hi, my name is Elizabeth Sutton.
I am oneof the head decorators here at Amanda Oakleaf Cakes.
I really enjoy working here and beinga cake decorator and more specifically, cupcake decorator.
You can come, visit us at our at1 Pauline Street, Winthrop, Massachusetts and you can also visit our website at oakleafcakes.
And today, I'm going to be talking to you about cupcake decorating.
I'm going to beshowing you how to make some simple drop flowers on the top of your cupcakes.
You want to dothis with 2 different colors; you can use the same size piping tip, just a round tip.
The bigger you go, the bigger the center and the petals will be for your flowers.
So we'regoing to give these flowers white petals.
So I usually give a couple on my cupcakes.
So you know, just sprinkle them middle around, so that can be the middle of your flowers.
Basically what you want to do is that you want to squeeze out little drops around thecenter to make pretty and pretty petals.
You can make your petals different sizes by addingmore pressure.
And even if you want to move your tip in a different way like this, youcan give your petals different shapes.
If you have space leftover, you can just addanother flower.
It's okay if they overlap.
You can even incorporate different colorsso that you can have a couple of different types of petals, different colored petals,different colored middles.
Basically you got different flowers on your cupcake.
And thatis how you make simple job flowers.
