  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • cup butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup cream cheese
  • 3 ½ tbsp butter soft
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp pistachio paste
  • some almond paste white
  • some yellow food coloring optional


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a bowl, whisk sugar and eggs together until the mixture whitens. Then add the melted butter and vanilla. Finally add the flour gradually.
  • Pour the mixture into cupcake baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes.
  • Remove the cupcakes and let cool thoroughly.
  • Meanwhile, vigorously whisk the cheese with the butter. Add the icing sugar and pistachio and mix it to obtain a homogeneous mixture. Place it in the refrigerator.
  • Prepare the almond paste flowers: take a small amount of almond paste, add a drop of yellow dye, and mix well. Form small balls (the same amount as the number of cupcakes you have) and set aside.
  • With the rest of white almond paste, form several small balls (you’ll need 4-5 for each yellow ball). To form a petal, just flatten a white ball, and pinch one of the edges. Stick 5 petals around a yellow ball to form a daisy.
  • Pour the icing in a pastry bag and decorate each cupcake. Finally, add a daisy. Chill before serving.
