Hi everyone, today I wanted to show you how to make these poppy cupcakes. I will be making these poppy cupcakes for Remembrance Day. They are super quick to make and don’t require many tools either.

How To Make The Poppy’s Petals
Roll out some red modelling paste and cut out two circles.
Use the circle cutter to cut about a quarter off the shape of one circle.
Next, use the circle cutter to cut half away from the other circle.
Using a knife, cut a further piece off both shapes, leaving a flat side.
You should now have two similar shapes, one slightly smaller than the other. Neaten and curve the edges with your fingers.
I used a flower leaf shaper tool to emboss lines all around the outside of the petals.
Stick the two petals together, using a little vodka or edible glue.
Roll a small piece of black modelling paste or fondant into a ball and flatten it. Stick the black piece in the centre of the petals using vodka or edible glue.
How To Make The Leaf
Roll out some green modelling paste. It will help if you have it narrower at one end.
Using a knife, cut out triangular shapes from either side as can be seen above.
Trim the excess off the bottom. Use your fingers or the flower leaf shaper tool to smooth the points of the leaf.
I hope you enjoyed reading about how to make these poppy cupcakes. Below is a list of the items that I used to make them. I have also included affiliate links. I added a green food colouring to my white modelling paste for the leaves, but you could also use ready made green modelling paste.
