Sunflower cupcakes

These were for Ben's class picnic. I adapted the design from one in the Hello Cupcake! book, using buttercream frosting and "Newman O's" cookies (Sara has finally freaked me out enough about hydrogenated fats that I had the Oreos in my hand and took them back. Thanks, Sara, for giving me one more thing to be paranoid about!!). Some of the decorations in the book call for fruit candies, which work, but take a lot of time to do. It was much easier to pipe some of those decorations with a leaf tip. I was pretty happy with how they turned out, and they quickly disappeared, so I will take that as a good sign!
