Cupcakes for an Occasion
Decorating cupcakes is fun, easy, and very simple. Cupcakes are fun! Kids and adults of all age cannot resist eating them.
There are so many variations on cupcakes they give you a sense of freedom and let you express your creativity in a very simple way. Cupcakes can be decorated very simply with butter cream or very extravagantly with fondant or melted chocolate.
If you have a great cake recipe that you would like to use go ahead and use if to make your cupcakes. I usally just use a boxed cake mix to save time.
If you have a cupcake recipe that you would like to share with other please do so in the from below.
I personally always fill my cupcakes, I think that is what makes them so moist and give you that extra surprise when you bite into one. Fillings can be anything like jams, whip cream, butter cream, mousses, or Bavarian cream.
First step to filling a cupcake is to prepare a decorating bag or parchment paper with your choice of filling and decorating tip 230. Insert tip into the center of the cupcake before you ice it and squeeze out some filling. It is as simple as that. If you do not have a 230 tip you can experiment with other tips that look similar remember be creative and use what you have in your cake decorating toolbox?
There are many ways to frost a cupcake, the techniques you choose will depends on what look you are trying to achieve.
You can use Tip 1M to pipe on frosting the cupcake. Just hold the tip above the cupcake top and pipe a spiral of icing beginning at the outer edge and work your way in towards the middle. Once you get to the center, pull the tip straight up and that's all!
Here are some of the cupcakes I've done for family BBQ's
