Celebrate the beauty that is your mom this Mother's Day by creating these colorful cupcakes in her honor. These cheerful Peach Cobbler Butterfly Cupcakes made using brand new Wilton products will surely make her heart soar. This post is brought to you by Wilton.
Last week I traveled to Chicago for Wilton's Sweet Up Event where they unveiled their new product line.
During the two-day event we got hands-on experience with some of the new decorating tools.
Today I'm going to share with you how I used several of them to make, decorate and display these butterfly cupcakes.

The new Treatology Flavor System contains bottles of super concentrated flavorings including Juicy Peach, Toasted Coconut, Meyer Lemon, Creamy Vanilla Custard, Warm Cinnamon Graham, Fresh Basil and Crisp Champagne.
You can use the flavorings to enhance frosting, cakes, cookies, drinks, and more. The flavors can be used on their own or combined in wonderfully creative combinations like peach cobbler.
Wilton takes the guesswork out of it for you by providing you with a booklet with flavor combinations.
To make a peach-flavored cake, mix your cake mix according to the package instructions and stir in the Juicy Peach Flavoring.
Then spoon the batter into your cupcake liners. If using the Butterfly cups, you'll only get 15 cupcakes because they are quite large. They'll take a few extra minutes to bake because of their size.
To make the peach cobbler frosting, you'll want to mix the drops of juicy peach, warm cinnamon graham, and vanilla custard flavors into your frosting. Then divide the frosting into three equal parts and color them.
Using Wilton's new Color Right System you can choose how to color your frosting. The box of super-concentrated food colors contains 8 squeeze bottles of Yellow, Orange, Red, Pink, Blue, Crimson, Brown, and Black. The enclosed booklet shows you exactly how many drops of each color to use to turn frosting or fondant into just the right custom color.
In keeping with the peach cobbler theme, I chose a peach, yellow orange, and cream combo.
To get the beautiful multicolored swirl on top of each cupcake, I used the new ColorSwirl 3-Color Coupler. It's such a cool tool. To use it, you fit pastry bags with the couplers then fill the bags with the different frosting colors. The couplers lock together to form one large coupler. Then you add the pastry tip and outer ring to hold it all together.
You can leave your three bags separate, but I chose to put them down into a fourth bag. I found it easier to handle, that way.
Pipe large frosting swirls on top of your cupcakes.
To dress up the cupcakes, you can add a Butterfly Silhouette Icing Decoration on the frosting swirl.
Once the cupcakes are all pretty, you'll want to display them on something to really show them off.
Wilton's new Display Your Way adjustable tower is amazing. You can display 5, 9, 13, 17, or 25 cupcakes on the stand, based on how you assemble it. You can even fill the center with candy, nuts, beads, or ribbon.
The stand is sturdy and clear, so it really shows off the cupcakes. I filled mine with candy and built it to hold 13 cupcakes.
As a member of the Wilton Sweet Treat Team, I was compensated, given free products, and treated to all expense-paid trip to the Sweet Up Event. All opinions expressed here are my own.
