Mother's Day Cupcakes

I went to visit my parents this weekend and as I don't see them very often, I decided to make some early mother's day cupcakes to surprise my mum with. Mother's day isn't until the 30th March in the UK but I knew she'd appreciate a homemade present better than me buying her something!
 
 
 
Here are the designs I came up with. I did three with marshmallow fondant toppings and the other three with buttercream. I also made a little happy mothers day sign for one of the cupcakes, with a little bow at the bottom - I thought it was so cute!
 
 
I also used my rose petal nozzle to pipe this rose, and added a couple of fondant leaves. This nozzle has got to be my absolute favourite. It does take a lot longer to do than a simple swirl and so I wouldn't like to do a lot of them, but it's so much fun to do just one or two and they look so pretty. What do you think of the rose petal nozzle?
 
 
My mum is an artist and when I brought her the cupcakes, the first thing she did was to find a matching painting and take a picture of her cupcakes with the painting. How amazing is her art? She is very talented! Feel free to take a look at her page here if you like the look of her paintings. I absolutely loved making her these cupcakes and they are such a cute idea for a homemade present - I hope I might have given you inspiration for your own cupcakes! :D
