How to decorate cupcakes

Today, we are talking about cupcakes!

YUMMY  little delights with CREAMY chocolate buttercream icing!

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 😉

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?” how to decorate cupcakes 2

I decided to answer those questions today.

Plus, I thought it would be a GOOD idea to show you a bunch of different DESIGNS that I use to decorate cupcakes as well 🙂

Rather that do a picture tutorial, I did a VIDEO TUTORIAL with the hopes that everything would be more clear.

I am a little camera- shy.

So, you CAN’T see me but you can see my hands 😛

I still need to learn a few things about filming a video properly…lol.

So, please PARDON the shadows and random jerks and movements in the video.

I promise my next video will be much BETTER 😉

But for now, sit back and enjoy this video tutorial on how to decorate cupcakes…

By the way, these are vanilla cupcakes and I am frosting them with chocolate buttercream icing.

It’s always NICE to have a handy guide.

So, I took this picture with different cupcake designs and their corresponding decorating tips.

    Interesting video! Have you considered doing an update? It would be helpful to see a video in better lighting and also with a light colored frosting. Shadows on chocolate make it hard to see. Also instead of music, would love to hear you explain what you are doing – show what the tip looks like, explain what angle to hold, how much pressure, etc. Cupcakes are one of my favorite things to bake, so Im familiar with using these tips, but for someone who hasn’t tried it, it can seem intimidating. (People have been so impressed with my cupcake frosting, they don’t understand how easy it is, haha!). Just a thought that for someone nee, it would help to hear instructions and see better.

    PS – Enjoyed poking around the rest of your blog – lots of great ideas and recipes!

      Thanks for your feedback. I am definitely thinking about updating this old video and making it clearer and next time, I am using white frosting…lol 😉
