My goodness! This has been a tiring week. My little one has started eating solids and he is a VERY VERY VERY picky eater! It can take me up to an hour just to get through one feeding Confused smile

Every day, I try to feed him something different just so I get an idea as to what he likes. 

I know this has nothing to do with today’s posting but I just wanted to ask all my mommy friends out there…Did your kids give you a hard time as well? What type of food did you try? I think I am starting to run out of options …so, all suggestions are welcome Smile

AND NOW…let’s talk about cupcakes! Yummy little delights with creamy buttercream icing! mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm…

I have yet to meet a person who doesn’t like cupcakes!

They are just so soft and cute that no one can resist them and once you ice them in a buttercream design, they become even more irresistible Winking smile

Two of the most common requests I get from my lovely readers are: “How do you make swirls on cupcakes?” and “How do you make roses on cupcakes?”

In addition to responding to those 2 requests, I thought it would be a good idea to show you a bunch of different designs that I use to decorate cupcakes as well Smile

Rather that do a picture tutorial, I decided to do a video tutorial with the hopes that everything would be more clear.

I am a little camera- shy so I am not in it but my hands are in it…hahah

I still need to learn a few things about filming a video properly…lol. So, plz pardon the shadows and random jerks and movements in the video. I promise my next video will be much better Winking smile

But for now, sit back and enjoy the video…

It’s always nice to have a handy guide. So, I took this picture with different cupcake designs and their corresponding decorating tips.
