How to Pipe A Buttercream Daisy Like A Professional Baker

You don’t need to order custom cupcakes!  This tutorial will teach you how to pipe a buttercream daisy so you can make your own confection creations!



Elaborately decorated cakes and cupcakes can provide a real WOW factor to a party table.  Some are so beautiful and elaborate that the entire theme of the table revolves around the cake centerpiece.  Many times, we don’t think about making these treats ourselves because the thought of working with icing and all the various cake decorating techniques can be quite daunting! Well, I am here to tell you that you can make these gorgeous daisy cupcakes with just a few simple tools and a steady hand.

One thing that I love about the cake business is that professional bakers are so very generous with their knowledge.  I learned most of what I know from online tutorials and I couldn’t be more grateful for the time that those bakers spent putting their knowledge out there for people like you and me.  For this technique, iambaker is providing the step by step tutorial that will truly make this so easy for you to try.  She admits that it takes a little finesse to find the perfect petal shape, but we think they are all beautiful.  She even offers two videos, one with a simpler technique and one with a more detailed version.

I suspect that once you know the basics, you may want to try your hand at some other techniques as well.  The best part is that you get to eat your work!  Have fun and happy caking!
