Hydrangea Cupcakes

These cupcakes incorporate four of my favorite things: hydrangeas, ladybugs, cake, and M and Ms!

We just made cupcakes out of a box and buttercream icing.  

The lady bugs are made with black icing, red M and Ms, and a super-small icing tip.  Your hands can get a workout from making these little suckers.

The hydrangeas are made with a Wilton 2D tip, using a twisting motion.  You can get the double colors by making two separate batches of icing and sliding one color down the side of the bag and the other color down the opposite side.  If the colors slightly mix, that's okay!  It will make you cupcakes look even more unique!
