Cupcakes :)

Posted on

In order to get some practice with my icing techniques, I baked cupcakes the past two weekends. What a difference something as simple as the icing tip makes. Up until I made these cupcakes, the only icing tip I ever used was a very basic “open star” 16. It is ok for borders but not nearly as impressive as the tips below. The 1M is my favorite. It is the easiest to use and very versatile. The bottom two cupcakes in the first photo were done with the 1M.

These were made with buttercream icing using the "grass" 233 tip, "petal" 104 and "open star" 1M (my favorite).

The cupcakes below were a little trickier because the icing was whipped cream. I still have to tweak the recipe because these lost their shape after a few hours but they were so much tastier than the buttercream which were way too sweet.

Whipped Cream CupcakesI keep saying I’m going to take a cake decorating class at Michael’s or JoAnn but I never seem to have the time so I just look online whenever I get a chance. I am grateful for all the tutorials I have found online for anything and everything I need, thus I pass on what I learn via my blog.
