Step 1

Cover drum board with your chosen coloured sugarpaste.

Cover cupcakes with circles of thin white sugarpaste, then using the food colourings colour the rest of the white sugarpaste and cut out flowers using 5 petal cutter, to fit over the top. Make small balls of paste and flatten to create a centre for each flower. 

Step 2

Position cupcakes on board. Make long ‘sausages’ of paste in Green sugarpaste for flower stems (use a smoother if you have one to ensure even stems). Add butterfly decoration to some of the cupcakes if wished.

Step 3

Tie a length of ribbon around stems and make a large bow.

Optional – Add an inscription on the board.
