I'm making cupcakes for a couples shower I'm co-hosting. We want to decorate them with the letter "B" for the combined last name. I don't want to buy a chocolate mold, nor do I want to pipe Bs on each cupcake. Any ideas for picks or other ways to get the intial on there?

Thanks and God Bless!

Why don't you pipe it in royal icing and then you can put it on the cupcake laying down, or standing up.

If you have alphabet letter cutters, you could cut the 'B's out of fondant.

this can also be done with chocolate melts, which come in many different colors

You can make a B using this method.

You could print out a cute or pretty letter B on the computer a whole bunch of times in the right size and then cover it with wax or parchment paper. If you put them in the freezer or fridge to harden, be careful not to touch them until they are at room temperature or you will leave fingerprints on them.

I usually use a piping bag instead of a squeeze bottle, but I imagine my way makes much more of a mess!
