Eye-popping fun!

Cupcakes are usually one serving size, no sharing involved. They’re small and easy to package, store, and transport. Decorating cupcakes is fun and creative  for people of all ages. Generally they can be made out of common kitchen supplies and ingredients you have on hand, and they take less then 1/2 an hour to bake.

 Cupcakes are perfect for a plethora of events, including birthday parties, bachelorette parties, business events, rehearsal dinners, bachelor parties, weddings, bridal parties, and  so much more. Cupcakes have become so popular that they have been substituted from traditional cakes for weddings.

 Similar to a cake cupcakes can be decorated with royal icing, buttercream, fondant, flower paste, modeling chocolate, or combination. You can create intricately piped cupcakes with with realistic flower paste flowers, or as I have done with simplicity and ease. Anyone can join in the decorating fun, and of course you are only limited by your imagination!

I created these adorable cupcakes with royal icing, # 104 nozzles, and  several #3 writer nozzles. You could substitute the writer nozzle with parchment cones cut to a small opening.

Here are a list of equipment and materials you will need for these project.
