Easy Vanilla Cupcake & Award

It seems that I have been posting on lots of cakes, dessert and sweet things recently. I couldn’t help it. It seems that I got lots of desserts and sweets stuffs project going on – Cupcakes, pastillage, chocolates and more cupcakes... I think there will be more desserts projects coming on for the next couple weeks… 

Anyway, these cupcakes were part of my project for this month. I was supposed to prepare these vanilla cupcakes with two different themes – Turquoise and Yellow. I made some royal icing flowers for the toppers a few days earlier and kept them in an air tight container. This is the first time made a royal icing flowers. So, the shape was a bit inconsistent.

The cupcake was then frosted with Swiss meringue butter cream and topped them with those royal icing flowers. How do they look?  Which one is your favorite? Here's the recipe for the vanilla cupcake. It was actually a basic recipe which you could find almost anywhere online. But I got them from the cupcake class that I went to last time.
