Cupcake Decorating: Hydrangeas

I saw a tweet last week about Hydrangea cupcakes, and I had to check it out. Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers, especially the bi-colored variations! I read the post over on Glorious Treats, and I was surprised at how simple this technique really is! I couldn't wait to try it. When I made my Raspberry Filled Cupcakes with Raspberry Buttercream earlier in the week, I saved a few so I could try this technique out for myself. I set aside some of my buttercream before I added the raspberry puree so I could try the bi-color look using pink and white frosting. Not too shabby for the first time around! Definitely check out the post on Glorious Treats, she gives a great tutorial on how to pull this off.

I'll definitely try this again!
