I have seen many beautiful succulent cupcakes online which have inspired me to try it.
The cupcakes are chocolate sponge. I used vanilla fudge flavour icing sugar for the buttercream.
I used a small selection of piping tips including a drop flower and leaf tip.
I coloured buttercream into pink, purple, spruce green, blue/green.
The ‘sand’ is light brown sugar.
I really enjoyed my first attempt at this style of cupcake and I will definitely trying succulent cakes again!
