We are celebrating with sunflower cupcakes today!

I took melted almond bark and colored it with Wilton paste color for the petals and used melted chocolate chips for the center. I drew out the sunflowers and then covered my paper with wax paper. The sunflowers were just a “guide” to keep me from getting too far off track.

Here is the sunflower template I used.


I filled ziploc bags with the melted candy, snipped of a tiny corner of the bag and piped the melted candy.


Once the candy is completely cool and hard you have a sunflower cupcake topper!
