Frangipani cupcakes recipe

Vanilla cupcakes adoened with Frangipani flowers made from marshmallows.So simple to make and very pretty.




Tint the buttercream icing with the yellow food colouring to make a sunny yellow.

Generously coat each cupcake.

Cut marshmallows in half-way along the barrel side with scissors. Pinch each end to make petal shapes.

Arrange on the top of the cupcakes to form a flower.

Using a cotton bud, dip the end in the yellow food colouring and paint the marshmallows just on the flower centre ends so they have a blush of yellow in the centre.


  • You can also paint them with pink food colouring if you want pink Frangipani's too.
