Flower Rice Cupcake
For this week’s Culture Club activity, my coworkers and I were able to make 떡컵케익, or rice cake cupcakes. The flowers on top are made of rice cake, and the cupcake itself has a raspberry rice cake filling. Although I wasn’t good at it and don’t particularly like rice cake, it was an interesting experience.

The rice cake was already given to us in piping bags in two colors: yellow and pink. There was also green, but the instructors used that for putting leaves on our finished cupcakes. I don’t have pictures of how to make the flowers, because I failed miserably at making them, but we had to squeeze the icing into a tower on a stick with a flat disc on top. After that, we had to make little rainbows on the tower to simulate flower petals.

The instructor had to make two of mine so I could have some on my cupcake. I found that I did better when I switched to my left hand, though, because I use that hand for opening bottles and such. We then used the flat scissors to transfer the flowers to a tray. After stealing flowers that the instructors and my coworkers made, I had enough to make two cupcakes.

All in all, I enjoyed hanging out with my coworkers and getting to try something new. Now I just have to find someone to eat these cupcakes.
