Ingredients

  • 1 to 2 cans vanilla frosting (16 ounces each)
  • Cupcakes of your choice
  • POINSETTIA:
  • Clear decorating sugar
  • Winterfresh or cinnamon chewing gum
  • Additional vanilla frosting
  • Yellow candy-coated sunflower kernels

Directions

  1. Frost cupcakes, reserving some frosting for decorating as desired.
  2. For poinsettia cupcakes: Place decorating sugar in a small shallow bowl; roll top edge of each cupcake in sugar to form a decorative rim. Set aside.
  3. 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.
  4. Arrange leaves in a circular pattern over top of each cupcake, working from the 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. Yield: varies.

These are fun but difficult to get the flowers just right. I may try gum paste next time.

I would use fondant for the flowers..Children may not be able to chew gum..they would eat and swallow it. I is a very pretty cupcake..
