What type of frosting is used to decorate cupcake dummies? Buttercream, Royal Icing???


Also how do I decorate a cupcake with non perils only on the outer edge of the cupcake as in the attached photo?

Thanx icon_smile.gif

What a cute cupcakes! Try icing in royal so that the dummies last longer. While the icing is still wet, gently roll the edge in non perils and then top with the flower (made and dried ahead of time).

A few days late, but King Arthur Flour had a video on their blog showing the cupcake decorating with the sprinkles.

I used an alternative topping (carpenter's caulking) when I made my cupcake dummies, worked great, and looked very real icon_smile.gif
