Everyone always asks me how on earth I always make my cupcakes look so good. Well, it’s all in how you decorate them. It’s actually very simple to frost a cupcake like a ‘pro’ and add a few touches to make them look like they came from that bakery down the road (without actually getting them from the bakery down the road). Here are 5 great blog posts from fellow baking bloggers that explain the different tips you can use, along with different ways to use the tips. You’ll never bust out that butter knife and tub of frosting again once you see how fast and easy it is!

“If you are completely new to decorating cupcakes, I will show you a couple of must have piping tips/nozzles and how their designs look frosted on a cupcake.”
They go over a ton of tips and how you can use them to make different effects. The greatest advice they give is to try it out on a separate board before you actually begin frosting your cupcakes.
“These techniques are perfect for beginners because they are so forgiving.”
Another great blog post with video to show you how to give those cupcakes some style without a lot of hassle!
“Decorating cupcakes is SO SUPER FUN, and the decoration will determine the level of “oohs” and “aahs” you get when people first see your cupcakes.”
She is so right! People gawk at well decorated cupcakes as much as they gawk at cute little babies. Doing something yourself impresses EVERYONE.
“I’m going to run through all of our best tips and tricks to get perfect, bakery-style cupcakes.”
Another great overview on tips and tricks to make the most beautiful looking cupcakes, sure to impresses everyone you deliver them to.
“remember when I first started decorating cupcakes I too was very interested in (and intimidated by) creating a beautiful swirl on cupcakes. After doing it only a few time I found that filling a piping bag and adding a nice swirl of frosting on cupcakes is actually much easier and quicker than spreading frosting!”
I couldn’t have said it better myself! It’s VERY easy and MUCH quicker to pipe your frosting on that using that pesky butter knife and tub of store bought sugar loaded fake frosting.
