I remember the first time I had any sort of freeze dried fruit. It was an orange segment decorating the top of a decadent, flourless, chocolate cake. I was blown away by how light and airy the orange piece was. It seemed to dissolve in my mouth so quickly, almost like cotton candy, but the flavour was so bright and intense. Since then, I’ve been wanting to try experimenting with freeze dried fruits, but have had difficulty finding any locally.
When it comes to cake decorating, I’m all about embracing low effort, high impact techniques, and these hydrangea cupcakes definitely fall into that category. Using a very simple piping method, you can quickly and easily create these beautiful, blooming cupcakes!
