Why buttercream flowers?

Buttercream flowers are a fun way to customize and decorate your cookies, cakes, and cupcakes! I am partial to buttercream frosting, I love its melt in your mouth texture and rich buttery taste, but you could use this technique with other frosting types as well.

Can I do these flowers on cupcakes?

Absolutely! I originally saw the buttercream floral trend on cupcakes, but I love cookies more so I thought, why not? You can really do the buttercream flower on any treat with a big enough surface area. Time to get creative!

How do I store these sugar cookies?

These sugar cookies can sit on your counter in an airtight container for a day or two, but they store a lot better in the fridge. Keep the cookies in an airtight container in your fridge for up to 1 week. Some people like their cookies chilled, but I personally think the taste is richer when at room temperature. For room temperature cookies, take them out of your fridge and let them sit on your counter for 20-30 minutes before enjoying.

Can I freeze frosted sugar cookies?

Yes! You can freeze your frosted sugar cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Just make sure to let your cookies get back up to room temperature before enjoying, otherwise they will be very hard!

Can I use other frosting colors?

You bet! When it comes to decorating your baked treats, it’s an art. You get creative, use any colors. This makes it really easy to customize your buttercream flowers to any theme, color scheme or holiday. This particular video was recorded in October and I opted for spooky all black flowers and I love how they turned out!
