I was so happy and honored to have the amazing people from the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation over for a studio visit and cupcake class this week. The kindness and compassion of everyone I've met in the organization continues to blow me away. Please join us next year in September for a very powerful and moving Tunnel to Towers 5K Run & Walk.
*The Tunnel to Towers Foundation honors and supports our first responders and most catastrophically injured service members.
|We started with a classic piped cupcake rose with a Wilton 2D tip|
|While everyone said they were beginners, I don't know ; )...these guys were good!|
|This is a super fun video tutorial on how to pipe a swirl rose: Lindsay Ann Bakes|
|After piping we moved on to gum paste flowers painted with petal dust|
|A simple confectioners' sugar and butter based buttercream is used for piping|
|I love using gold foil cupcake liners! They add a festive touch to any design|
|Veined sunflower, daisy and gerbera plunger cutters were used for daisies|
|We used a hydrangea flower cutter set with silicone veiner for making hydrangeas|
|Thank you Jen, Marie, Theresa, Coleen, Viki, Amanda, Jen, Erin, Sam, Janice, Shelly and Sanny for a really great afternoon! *And Thank you to Maria for all the behind the scenes work!|
