Baby Shower Mini Cupcakes!

Devils Food Cake and Vanilla Cake with two different Butter Creams for a Baby Shower

My favorite, chocolate with strawberry. But the other one’s were good,too.

The directions for both cakes are the same.

  1. Hi,
    I saw this recipe for the baby shower mini cupcakes and was wondering if you have a tutorial on how to make the flowers and what tip you used? They are too adorable!

  2. Hi Dee,
    sorry I don’t have a tutorial for those, but maybe explaining helps. I use the Wilton 1M tip. You put it right in the center of your mini cupcake, start squeezing and don’t move. not to the sides, neither any higher as you squeeze. You’ll see that the “flower” forms. Hope that makes sense to you, if not let me know!
