Hi. I do do some amateur cake decorating but not usually cupcakes. I need to make some cupcakes for a fundraiser on Friday though and am hoping I might get some pointers in here. The cakes are for primary school kids so need to be eye catching and super yummy (of course).
I thought of doing a pudsey face with an eye patch on but was wondering what the quickest and easiest and most effective way to do the eye patch is.
I thought I would do a few different styles too so I also thought of doing some with butter cream? on top and a few brighly coloured discs of different sizes but I have a couple of questions...
1) How do you get the butter cream to whirl on top? Do people use some sort of pre-prepared aerosol or something?
2) Would I just use the same sort of fondant icing I use to decorate big cakes to make the coloured discs out of?
And finally, does anyone else have suggestions for other designs?
Thanks in advance :)
