  1. Follow Westco Extra Rich Hi-Ratio Cake Mix bag instructions indicated for a small batch.


  1. Mix 1lb. of icing with 1 oz. of food color (or until desired color is achieved)


    1. Prepare your workspace: Cut parchment or wax paper into 3-inch squares. This is what you will build the sunflowers on. Fit a piping bag with leaf tip and fill with frosting. Lay one mini Oreo on each parchment square.
    2. Start by piping a small swirl of frosting on the center of the parchment paper square and use it to secure the mini Oreo in place.
    3. Pipe petals around the mini Oreo, working in a circle. The optimal number of petals is 12. To pipe, fold the frosting tip flat against the side of the Oreo. Using gentle consistent pressure, pipe a line about 1 cm long, then gently lift up at the end to create the curled point of the petal.
    4. Repeat with all mini Oreos.
    5. Transfer sunflowers on parchment paper onto a cookie sheet or other flat container that can be frozen, and put in the freezer for 10 minutes.
    6. Remove semi-frozen flowers from the freezer and pipe the second row of petals. You will use the same technique as before but place the second row in between the petals of the first row.
    7. When finished with the sunflowers, transfer back to the freezer-safe tray or container and freeze at least 15 minutes. If you aren’t decorating the cupcakes immediately, leave sunflowers in the freezer until ready to add to cupcakes. It makes them easier to work with.
  1. Remove sunflowers from the freezer and use a small dot of white frosting on the back to attach the sunflower gently to the piped cupcake. Use the gentlest pressure to push into place.
  2. Allow to set for at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator, uncovered. Or cover and refrigerate for 1+ hours.
  3.  In a separate piping bag outfitted with leaf tip, add frosting tinted green for leaves. To pipe a leaf, hold the piping bag at a 45-degree angle with the tip vertical to the space where you want the leaf. (Opposite of how you created the petals.) Squeeze a generous amount without moving the bag to form the leaf, then pull away to create the leaf shape.
