Hi There,

I am new to cake/cuppie decorating and would like to vary the way I frost my cupcakes. I either do a swirl or a big rose swirl on top, as I don't know any other methods. I have covered them in fonant before, but I prefer frosting that gives the cuppie a bit of height.

Does anyone have any suggest and tips that I needs to use to create different effects?

Thanks

Check out ShamsD on flickr, she's a total artist!
Just mess about with your piping bag and different tips, try different pressures, different wrist movements, there's heaps you can do.
Also try youtube, a lot of my favourites are cupcake techniques. My vids aren't much good yet but try my channel just to see my favourites. it's njoycakes.

To make a smooth swirl, just cut the tip off a disposable piping bag. The higher you cut it, the fatter the swirl will be.
