Not sure if I'm calling it the right thing, but I wanted to make a heartshaped cupcake presentation and ice them in one giant heart shape.
Does anyone have any tips on how you get the cupcakes to stay in the same spot while you are icing the top. And how do I ice the top? Should I use a giant icing tip and then smooth it out. I'm trying to make it look like a candy box. Also, what about some of the spaces in between the cupcakes - does that become a problem.
Thanks for any tips.
i think some people use a bit of icing to secure the cupcakes to the board, or use a cocktail stick.
i think the giant piping tip is the way to go, if your icing isnt too runny, then it will just cover the spaces.
Attach each cupcake with a dolop of icing.Glue it to the board in a staggered pattern to eliminate cracks.Ice the entire top with large icer tip and smooth.
Check out this thread.. I posted pictures of an easy way to make these...
OMG- thank you so much everyone. The hearshape pan is such a great idea. Then I can put fondant around the border to finish it off so it looks like a box of candy!
Very excited about this.
