This just came out online today, but I thought it might be handy for everyone here. Three basic designs & a bit of tool/instruction info.

(Don't laugh at me, okay?? It was SO nerve-wracking! icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif )

Finally, we got to see the master in action! That was great! If you do any more please, please let us know.

By the way, you guys are naughty. I don't think that I would have noticed the "spatula action" if I hadn't read your posts first.

I liked the flower cupcake. I know how to make RI flowers, but never thought of using a big flower to top a cupcake. Now that it's over, was it fun? icon_biggrin.gif

No, it was scary...not fun. I kept screwing up the word "tips" and saying something dirty! icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif Thank God for good editing!

The magazine is doing a beautiful spread as well, which we shot a few days before the video. I'm REALLY excited about that. It will come out in the June issue...so I guess in May? (Not sure if Chatelaine is available anywhere other than Canada though? icon_sad.gif )

Here's a photo of the ones we did in the magazine. I brought them home to snap a few of my own photos on my new little cupcake stand:

Funny that...it was a large tip #1M.

(I know, I know....not a tip used with a coupler, but that was too hard to explain in the video! We explain it in the magazine instead.)

I think that this instructional video was GRRRRRREAT!!!! I'm still in the beginning stages and this will help me a lot and maybe even build up my confidence because I had really given up. Icing a cake is pure frustration for me because I just can't seem to get the technique down. I think I'll just stick to cupcakes!!!!! thumbs_up.gif
