Can you believe it? I can’t either: summer has come and gone, and the first week of school has already ended! Where did the time go? The onset of fall not only brings many of us back to school and work, but it also takes the warm weather, daylight, and beautiful flowers with it!
I’ve seen many ideas for hydrangea cupcakes on Pinterest in the last few months and have wanted to make them all summer. Luckily, I found the time, just as the hydrangea bush in my backyard was starting to die. Phew!
For these cupcakes I used the Wilton 2D tip, and filled an icing bag half-and-half with blue and purple. I don’t like using too much food colouring becuase I find that even the pastes can change the texture of the icing (not to mention the copious amounts of chemicals!). I have also found that the icing colour darkens over time anyways (well, usually, but apparently not in this case). With that said, I wish I had added more food colouring this time; the colours look so muted in these pictures. Oh well, lesson learned!
I know my posts have been scarce lately, and now that school is back they will probably continue to be this way, but don’t forget about me! I’ll be back! 🙂
