Sunflower Cupcakes

As I mentioned last week, we went to Memphis to celebrate Memorial Day.  It was so much fun!  One of my bffs, Courtney, flew in from Florida with her boyfriend.  It was like a mini-reunion (reunited and it feels so good!).  Anyways, Katie (creator of the adorable halloween cupcakes and my 24th birthday cake) made the cutest sunflower cupcakes!  She used Wilton's small leaf tip (#67) to create the sunflower petals. 

Tip: We noticed that the tip really wasn't wide enough to let the icing through, so Katie had to pry it open just a little.

Katie used Martha Stewart's One Bowl Chocolate Cake recipe for the cupcakes, and her grandmother's buttercream icing recipe!  Yum Yum!

After letting the cupcakes cool, ice a small circle in the middle of the cupcake (see above picture)

Dip the cupcake in chocolate sprinkles.

Start icing small petals around the rim, then ice another ring of petals moving inward. (make sense?)

*Sorry the pictures are not great.  My camera was acting funny.
