Pretty in pink

happy friday! today i made the cupcakes for the baby shower tomorrow, as well as some extras for some of my favourite people... (you know who you are)

so these cupcakes are french vanilla with vanilla buttercream frosting.

this time i added more milk to the icing and the roses i attempted came out SO well! so i made a bunch of cupcakes with buttercream icing roses on top... and they look gorgeous. check it.

traditional girly pink this time!
ready to go

Monday blues cupcakes

hey guys! so this is my first post...obviously that's cupcake worthy.

i have been asked to make cupcakes for someone's baby shower next weekend and since i hadn't tried putting much effort into decorating cupcakes in the past, i decided i should start. this week i went and bought some tools:

  • wilton featherlight piping bag
  • wilton piping tips
i knew the basics of how to pipe icing, but had never tried. and even trickier was the idea of having to make a frosting with the right consistency to hold up when piped. 

....but, i am happy to report, that it all worked out amazingly! can't imagine the calorie count of these....

sad to report the cupcakes themselves were made from a box.... this experiment was really all about the icing.

 the finished product

my first attempt at an icing rose.

my second, and much better attempt.
