AMy daughter wants a cupcake cake shaped like a cross for a baptism. Never did one of these before. Do I arrange cupcakes first then frost ? Or frost individually, arrange on board then fill in spaces? Tia!

AYou could do it either way. I prefer to arrange and then Ice. I attach them with some melted white chocolate or a plop of buttercream so they don't slip

ALike this pic I posted? If it was me, I would frost it first and than arrange it into a cross shape like in pic. Should be simple to do. Hth:)[IMG]http://www.cakecentral.com/content/type/61/id/3293316/width/200/height/400[/IMG]

if you frost first then you aren't able to close all the gaps, making the cupcakes look like a solid object.

It also gives you the opportunity to move things around so that you get the right shape for your product and your board.
