What is the best method for icing a cupcake cake? I have done one before, however, with all the hills from the cupcakes, and gaps between the cupcakes, I know I used way more icing that I needed to. I am about to do one again and the only thing I can think of is flattening the tops, which still will fill the gaps. Any help is much appreciated.
I'd like to know this as well. I just did a bunch with SMBC and I think I'm going to make them bigger next time and slice the tops off to make them level. Or????
Start with less cake in your cupcakes...mine tend to have a flat top, not crowned.
I ice it with that wilton icer tip and then smooth out with pallette knife. I don't care if icing goes down the little holes. Just keep your cupcakes as close as possible to each other.
Okay, I'll try making them smaller.
