My boss asked me today if I would make a cupcake cake for the office 1yr anniversary.
She would like it in the shape of the number 1...my thought is, how would you get the sides to be perfectly straight? I would think it would be almost impossible without getting icing all over the sides of the cupcake liners...and the size would be for about 35 people..
Please tell me what your thought is? Is this possible to achieve with cupcakes and the number 1 to look like the number 1???
Well, using round cupcakes, no, you won't get straight edges, but making it 2 cupcakes wide with the "/" at the top and the serf "_" on the bottom should come out looking clearly like the number 1.
You could also get a mini loaf pan (they sell liners for it that are usually white) and that would do it very nicely.
You can get very close and definitely demonstrate the number 1 with the cupcakes. However, if you wanted crisp sides for the number, frost the cupcakes liberally with a background color and pipe a more precise "1" with very straight sides within the space. That would look very nice and still allow you to give a professional appearance.
