Candy Sunflower Cupcake Toppers

Posted by  ·  January 28, 2011  ·  Last Updated: January 25, 2017

This Friday Flashback is celebrating the Kansas Sesquicentennial tomorrow!

Celebrate with candy sunflowers!

Use melted yellow candy coating for the petals and melted chocolate chips for the centers. Print out the sunflowers and then cover the sunflower template with wax paper. The sunflower template was just a “guide” to keep me from getting too far off track.

Here is the sunflower template I used.


Fill ziploc bags with the melted candy, snip of a tiny corner of the bag and pipe the melted candy onto the wax paper using the guide underneath.


Once the candy is completely cool and hard you have a sunflower cupcake topper!
