Succulent / cactus cupcakes

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!

Here’s some photos:
