EZ Couture Pumpkin Cupcakes

Step 1: Create your frosting. Add orange gel dye to a vanilla frosting. I used a "simple buttercream" base of just butter, confectioner's sugar, vanilla and a pinch of salt. When coloring your frosting, start off by adding just a dot, and keep doing so until you get your desired shade of orange.

Step 2: Using Tip #847 pipe the orange buttercream onto the cupcake in a slight up and down motion, creating a ripple. Make sure to keep your piping bag upright.

Step 3: We used our homemade marshmallow fondant but you can definitely use store bought. Color your fondant with a green gel dye and create a stem and leaf. We did so by simply flattening a piece of fondant and using scissors to cut out a leaf shape. Make the stem by rolling a small piece of fondant. 
And that's it! Easy Pumpkin themed cupcakes. 

Disclaimer: We added gold wire to the cupcakes for show as "cake jewelry". When ordered the cupcakes will not come with the wire.
