How to Make Poinsettias
Place decorator sugar in a shallow bowl; roll top edge of cupcake in sugar to form a decorative rim. Set aside.
Using clean kitchen scissors or a small sharp knife, cut gum into leaf shapes of various sizes. Pinch the base end of each leaf, forming a curved leaf shape. Add frosting to a small resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in the corner.
Arrange leaves in a random circular pattern on top of each cupcake, working from teh outer leaves in. Press outer leaves into top of cupcake; secure with additional frosting as needed. Continue adding leaves and securing with frosting to form a poinsettia. Gently press sunflower kernels into the center.
