WFMW: Easy Way to Frost Cupcakes

June 17, 2008 at 8:35 pm (Uncategorized)

You know how you can never accomplish those picture-perfect cupcakes with the cute swirl of frosting. While going through some old cake decorating books I found this awesome tip.

Use a container of whipped frosting in a bowl and give it an extra whip with your mixer. (I do this anyways cuz it fluffs up the frosting and makes it go further.)

Then take the cupcake in your hand, turn it upside down. Put it in the frosting bowl, turn and pull it out. It works great and is much neater than trying to use a knife. Even my kids can do it.

Head back to Shannon’s for more WFMW ideas.

    Fabulous idea! My brother used to work for one of those super popular bakeries in NYC and was an expert froster. I was so embarrased that my cupcakes looked horrid compared to his!

    This sounds very cool! I’ve done this with whipped cream before, but I never would have thought to whip the frosting! Thanks!

    Oh this is wonderful! I’m doing this from now on! I’ll bet they turn out much cuter than when I mutilate them accidentally with my butter knife.
