I agree! also I saw at the store when they were making a cupcake cake they use the icing tip (the big one) and then use the smaller ones to decorate.

Arrange your cupcakes in the shape you want on the board. I recommend putting a dot of frosting under the outer cupcakes to kinda glue the design in place. Using a regular decorating bag with an open coupler, pipe an "outline" around the entire mass of cupcakes, this will help your edges look clean. Then start filling in a few of the gaps if there are some. I always try to arrange the cupcakes in a honeycomb pattern rather than a grid just so there isn't a whole lot of frosting in the cracks, but sometimes that isn't possible. So I fill in those cracks with a little glob or strip of frosting. Then, using a speed icer, pipe out strips of frosting covering the entire cupcake cake. Smooth it over with an offset spatula, Viva if necessary and yo'ure done.


Ohhh, so are my chicken nuggets, timers going off! icon_smile.gif
