DIY flower cupcakes for Mother’s Day

Give your mum a lovely surprise this Mother's Day with some beautiful flower cupcakes. They are super easy to make and there's no baking required!

Make the perfect flower cupcakes in 8 easy steps:

1. Divide ½ pack Asda Vanilla Flavour Frosting between 2 bowls.

2. Stir purple food colouring into one batch and pink food colouring into the other, one drop at a time, until you get the right shade.

3. Spoon each colour into a separate piping bag with a star nozzle.

4. Take an Asda Plain Fairy Cake and pipe on the pink icing – start in the centre and work outwards in a spiral swirl to form the petals. Repeat until you have 3 pink and 2 purple frosted cupcakes. 

5. Use one or two drops of Asda Green Natural Food Colouring on Asda Ready to Roll White Icing and roll it out to 2mm thick.

6. Use a sharp knife to cut out 5-10 leaf shapes and mark with ‘veins’.

7. Allow to dry then position 1 or 2 leaves on the side of each flower.

8. Line a pretty biscuit tin with crepe or coloured tissue paper, arrange the cupcakes inside and finish with extra crepe or tissue paper, to decorate.
