Here’s a clever way to decorate cupcakes: use candy to make a flower design on top.
After you bake the cupcakes of your choosing, ice them and make a flower design with different candies, such as jelly beans, Jordan almonds, licorice pastels, and mint cremes. It might lead to a sugar overdose, but it certainly looks pretty.
Looks like this idea originally came from Hello Cupcake! by Karen Tack.
