What You Need to Make Hydrangea Frosting Flowers wilton_cake_decorating_tip

To adorn your cupcakes with these glorious Hydrangea Flowers, you really do not need much: just the right tool!

How to Make Colored Frosting Flowers

This is where Glory sets herself apart from the pack.  She colored half of the frosting blue, and the other half purple. Genial.

Gloria uses your basic American-style buttercream recipe (i.e. butter, powdered sugar, milk), but with the added ingredients of a cup of cream cheese, a teaspoon vanilla extract, and just a less than a table spoon of cream so that the frosting stays nice and firm. She also makes sure the frosting is cold, not room temperature so that the shapes stay nice.

I recommend Wilton’s Cake Decorating Basics DVD. Besides selling you all the supplies you’d need, Wilton’s also have professional cake decorating classes but who has time for that if you can learn it from this handy DVD.

It shows you the basics techniques and, filled with helpful tips, it actually all you need to know about cake decorating.

The video segments are easy to understand and short, i.e. user friendly to watch. The DVD comes with a nice booklet which summarizes the main points.
