So I trying to figure out the secret to frosting the cupcakes cakes. My son wants one for his birthday next week and I want to know how you frost all those cupcakes without them moving on you. What is the trick?
Any help would be appreciated!
You can use Wilton's 1M tip to do a swirl of icing on top of each cuppie. Or....you could also do a large round tip swirl...Like a 12, 1A or 2A tip. It creates a decorative touch and doesn't take a long time.
Hope this helps
I've seen ccc with a dot of icing on the bottom of each cc, or maybe use something like royal icing???
I put a dab of buttercream under the cupcakes to 'glue' them in place. You also want to place them as close together as possible. I've never had them move around on me while I am icing them.
I'm so dingy...I musunderstood what you were asking . I've never made a cupcake cake but I'm sure you'll find the answer here on CC.
i've never made a cupcake cake but would like to know the secret to them not moving on you- is there a tutorial on this??
I'm sure there is a how to somewhere, but you really don't have to have one.
Take your cupcakes and line them up in a row on the board. Then you will take the next row of cupcakes and place those between the others and you keep doing this until you have the size/shape you need. This way all the cupcakes are as close as possible together. You can put a dab of icing under them if you want to help keep them from moving.
You can use the cake icer tip or just your spatula and icing to ice the tops of them in thin icing, just like you would a cake. I've done tons of these and haven't ever had to fight to keep the cupcakes in place.
I've always placed the cupcakes how I want them on the board, then put a dab of BC under just the outer cupcakes. Once the outside ones are anchored, the middle ones won't move. Just seems easier, less time consuming, and less mess too when the cuppies are handed out.
Then to ice the tops, I just use my speed icer to cover the tops and smooth with a spatula/scraper. Easy, but I just don't like how sloppy the edges can get with cupcake cakes.
