Unfortunately, this frosting recipe is not available to share because it is Cupcake Royale’s proprietary recipe and the frosting was provided for the demonstration by the bakery.

I kind of like it - it is different, and looks easier for the eater to not have to fight with a tall swirl of frosting piled high in the center!

I like it. Probably requires some practice though. The buttercream seems soft. I might give it a try.

It's the same as the Magnolia Bakery isn't it - I've been doing this for a while now, although it takes me forever to get it neat! People seem to prefer eating it as it's far less frosting. Personally I prefer the look of it to a big whirl of frosting (particularly if it's done with a plain nozzle, which I always think looks a bit suspect :) ) The savings from using less SMBC or ganache don't go unnoticed either :D

Good point, it is less frosting and easier to bite, when you are eating it you don't feel like you don't have enough frosting, Trust me I have eaten one or two of their cupcakes since I live within walking distance of their shop in WS.

It is a crusting BC, but it doesn't crust hard like some I have seen, it's lightly crusted if that makes sense?

I personally have not attempted this technique as I am a fan of the enormous 1m swirl and my family would prefer the frosting without the cupcake!
