I am making a giant cupcake for my friends daughters 1st birthday this coming saturday & need some suggestions.
I am stuck on icing the side & making it look like a cupcake case. I will have no time to get to a shop to buy anything else so i will have to use something in my cupboards. Also no time to buy anything from the net.
Could anyone suggest what to ice it with & also how to make it look like a cupcake case? I thought royal icing on the sides & buttercream frosting for the top iced in stars in light pink & dark pink.
Thanks in advance
You can use a large round tip, only the coupler or a parchment bag with a round cut and pipe a thick line down the sides. leave a small gap and go the whole distance around the liner. Go back over the lines with a second line to give a bit of a crimped edge. Fast and easy. You should have everything in house for that. The top then can be a large star tip or spatula iced top maybe with sprinkles. I will try and post a picture.
Their are several pics in the gallery
Hi thanks for your help, would you recommend royal icing for both the piped sides & the piped stars on top?
Or royal icing for the piped sides & buttercream stars on top?
I really don't use royal icing for cake icing. I use buttercream for most of everything in cake or ganache at room temp.
