Festive Poinsettia Cupcakes is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from So much red food coloring I tried making the flowers and it worked...but I did use a lot of food coloring and my hands were stained for days. The red was pretty bad and stained my iPad cover. Pretty annoying.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I really wanted to love these, but it was hard for me to get the royal icing to the right consistency and to make them the right size to fit three onto a cupcake. I ended up with ones that resembled a poinsettia and were so large that I could only fit one onto the cupcake. Of course, I attribute these difficulties to my decorating skills (or lack thereof). I think if I had more experience making flowers they would have turned out beautifully. The reason I gave these three stars is because they tasted terrible. I think I used so much "Christmas Red" coloring that it changed the flavor of the royal icing and made it, as my kids told me, "yucky!" Overall though, I guess their nice if you don't want to eat them.
