If you love to bake and have the time to decoratively frost your own cupcakes, try this simple and pretty idea for making hydrangea cupcakes.

I’m always on the lookout for a rare site or blog that shows (with great pictures) how to make hydrangea related goodies.

These hydrangea frosted cupcakes, from the awesome site “Glorious Treats”, are so cute and relatively simple to create.  They combine the pretty blue and lavender colors commonly found on hydrangea flowers, but the color of the frosting is up to the baker.  Try out various color combinations to make realistic-looking sweet treats.  Blue and lavender or purple is a common color scheme to see on hydrangea flowers, or white with light pink.  If you are clever with the icing, you may even find a way to create the light green shades that are so coveted.

Serve them up at a birthday party or bridal shower and I’m sure they’ll be a huge hit.  Yum!
