Daisy Cupcakes

A while ago, I came across these darling daisy cupcakes on Bakerella's blog, and was waiting for an oppurtunity to try them out. I love the cute things she does on her blog (you should check it out!) Bakerella certainly is an expert at doing cute things with candy melts, while I am not. I made these cupcakes today for my daughter's Daisy Girl Scouts, and what I thought would be a quick and easy project took me an hour! (Making the actual daisies. I made cupcakes first, which didn't take too long, and then I made my homemade frosting, which was super fast). I just don't think I have a knack for working with candy melts. I melted them in disposable piping bags, and the candy kept hardening and not coming out smoothly. I didn't have the cool squirt bottles like she has. I'll just blame it on that. In spite of myself, I was able to turn out some mostly-cute looking cupcakes.

Dishy, they are awesome! The candy melts would taste so much better than the gum paste or fondant. And the icing looks beautiful!
