Fairy Cupcakes : Sugared flowers

Our school has a bake sale tomorrow, and I’m making some fairy cupcakes for the sale. Hopefully they will be success for both fairies and parents. I’m using edible flowers as décor on lemon cupcakes. In this recipe I’m using pansies but nasturtiums and violets will also work.
