2. Lift the edges of the pineapple leaves up with your finger tips and place the smaller one on top (you may need to stick with edible glue if it doesn’t stick to itself). Leave to one side to dry for a few hours.

3. To flat top your cupcake, put some yellow buttercream on top and smooth this over the cupcake using a pallet knife. This will give you an even surface to pipe on. Next using the small open star nozzle and piping bag, cover the cupcake (starting at the top and working your way to the bottom).
