Mini Succulent & Cactus Cupcakes



I made these for wedding shower.  The theme of the shower was succulent and cactus.  So these are my mini cupcakes with succulent and cactus decoration.  They turned out so well I just loved them.

It is a white mini cupcake with buttercream frosting.  The succulents are made out of fondant.  I piped a swirl of buttercream on top of the cupcakes and then placed the succulents on top.  The cactus cupcakes were a little different.  I piped a thin layer of buttercream on them as well but then dipped them in graham cracker crumbs.  I then piped 2 different types of cactus on to the cupcakes with green tinted buttercream.  Then put dots of white buttercream on to the cactus to give it the needles on a cactus and topped them with a small pink flower.

Everyone was so pleased with the result they were just adorable!
