Dressing up cupcakes

19 Apr

As a child I grew up calling them ‘patty cakes’ but it seems that’s unheard of these days so I will bend to whim of popular opinion and call them cupcakes (as it’s likely nobody will understand me anyway). I had some left over icing and wanted to try my hand at decorating cupcakes, I don’t do it often. I don’t know but it seems like a lot of work for such a little snack. It was also a good excuse to practice writing with icing.

What did I learn?

Piping icing uses a LOT of icing (so much sugar isn’t good for you 🙂 ).

Wet butter cream icing softens hard sugar paste decorations.

I’m not too bad at writing with a piping bag.

Cupcakes are eaten in seconds and everyone wants more (I knew this already. I just thought I’d add it here).
