12 portions
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2/3 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cups unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons liquid vanilla
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons liquid vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • vegetal color additives


Soften the butter and add the refined sugar.
Add the eggs one by one. Beat well between each addition.
Mix the milk with the vanilla and pass through a sieve the flour, salt and baking powder. Add them to the mixture, alternating between dry and moist.
Pass the mixture to the saucers with the help of an ice cream spoon. This way all your cupcakes will come out of the same size. Bake at 175 ° C for 18 minutes.
Take out of the oven and let them cool.
For the bitumen: Acrema the vegetable shortening and add the previously sifted icing sugar.
Add the vanilla and milk. Beat until you have a creamy but firm consistency.
Divide the bitumen into 4 parts. Paint each part of the color you like the most, using vegetable coloring. Pass them to a pastry bag and using a 2D duya decorates the cupcakes.


Place them on an extended dish and arrange them to look like a cluster of flowers. You can stretch green fondant to form the stems.


If you do not have any saucers, pour the mixture over a previously greased cupcake mold.
