Picket Fence Flower Cupcakes

These lovely spring-time cupcakes are easy to make, and are so yummy! They would be great for, Easter, Mother's Day or just because it's spring :)

The idea is to make them look like they came straight from the garden. I used a chocolate base to make it look like soil, but if you can find brown cupcake papers, you could use any flavor of cake you'd like.

The picket fence wrappers are what really completes the look of the cupcakes. So cute!

Picket Fence Flower Cupcakes
Makes 24

24 baked and cooled chocolate cupcakes
1 batch buttercream frosting, dyed green
Pink and yellow royal icing Apple Blossom flowers (how-to can be found HERE)
24 picket fence cupcake wrappers (I found them locally at Michael's)
Pastry bag fitted with #233 grass tip (or, I used #18 star tip)

Fill pastry bag with buttercream, and randomly squirt "grass" on top of cupcake until surface is covered. Arrange four apple blossoms onto the top of each cupcake. Attach picket fence wrappers around sides. Serve and enjoy!


  1. Love these cupcakes!! I have a question for you, are these liners for standard sized cupcakes (approx. 2" diameter) or for jumbo cupcakes?? Thanks, love your blog!

    In Christ,

    1. Hi Tina!

      Thank you so much!!! The liners are for standard sized cupcakes (though for some reason, the package only contains 18 liners, so to decorate a full batch of the cupcakes you would need two packages of the liners...)

      Thanks for your question! Have a blessed day, and happy baking!
