INGREDIENTS: 
2 sticks butter, room temperature
1 cup vegetable shortening, room temperature
8 cups sifted powdered sugar
6 tbsp whole milk
 
HOW TO MAKE YOUR FROSTING – STEP BY STEP
Whip the butter and shortening until they’re smooth.
Add in the sugar, 2 cups at a time and continue to beat.
Add in the milk in between alternating with the sugar.
Beat on high until the frosting is fluffy. You want it to be thick, but not too thick where it won’t pipe smoothly.

HOW TO DESIGN YOUR CUCPAKES
The best Mother's Day treats to make is something that you know the beloved caregiver in your life will adore. However, a floral theme is always a winner, so if you feel unsure about the Mother's Day cake decorations that will float your mom's boat, pretty flowers are a good way to go.
 
Here are some insider tips on creating beautiful floral icing embellishments that will allow your baked goods for Mother's Day to stand out from the rest for sure.
 
HYDRANGEAS
To make hydrangeas, you will need to use a a large star tip.
Then add in 3 colors of frosting on each side of the bag. Adding three colors gives your hydrangea a beautiful dimensional look! 
Hold the tip down to the cupcake and pipe large petals all around until the top of the cupcake is covered.
 
CARNATIONS
Carnations are one of our favorite flowers to make! Simply add the buttercream frosting to the bag fitted with a ruffled tip.
Make sure to pipe with the tip sideways (not face down), start in the center of the cupcake and pipe around until your entire cupcake is filled with ruffles. 

PRO TIP 
It's so important to use separate frosting bags for each color pattern, you want to keep your frosting fresh and clean for each cupcake! We used our clear piping bags for this project! 
Swapping out your piping tips can be a messy project; we used our pipping nozzle to make it easier to swap out piping tips within seconds. Our pipping nozzles allow you to attach your piping tips through the outside of your pipping bag allowing you to swap as you please.
