Is there a frosting that you can dip cupcakes into? I want a smooth top and it seems I can never get it when I spread it on.

Thanks!

You can dip them in ganache or even cookie icing. We do it at the bakery I work at.

You can dip them into poured fondant, too.

I think a 7minute should work

here's a cupcake that I did using my regular icing (sam's club) and I just popped it in the microwave for about 10 seconds and melted it, when it firms up again it's like a poured fondant! I've also done it with store bought canned icing (ick)

I micro store bought as well. I find it changes the taste for the better too

Awesome! I was wondering the same thing! Microwaving your normal frosting - brilliant!!

haven't tried it with cookies (hadn't thought of it before, thanks!) but when it sets up, it's not soft and sticky it almost has a feel like fondant, but when you bite into it it's still like buttercream on the underneath if that makes sense. Kinda an odd thing! I'm gonna have to try it on cookies, you would have to work fast though because it does set up in just a couple minutes, I'm thinking you'd have to pipe or smooth it on rather quickly and get it smooth before it starts to stiffen up. I use melted buttercream all the time to paint on cakes........like the water on this cake was done that way

what a great idea, thank you. One more question, can you use it to stencil?
the water and the whole cake is beautiful, love your siggy also and so so true.
you have taught me so much today, thank you.
