Friday Smile - Cupcakes

I showed you a cake I decorated last week, this week in my Wilton cake decorating class we decorated cupcakes and learned how to make some flowers.

Now, while I love knowing how to make some flowers, I have to admit that I was super excited to learn how to swirl the icing on cupcakes.  I see these all the time in bakeries and love the way they look but when I tried it at home, it never looked good.  I can't say that it looks fabulous just yet, but with some practice I'll get there.


I'm actually surprised by how well I was able to learn how to make the rosettes, the light blue design.  I'm not good enough to actually, oh I don't know, get paid to make them.  But I'm better than expected!



Not too shabby for my first attempts at these designs, huh?

Lover of Books - Thanks! I'm trying to learn..there are 3 other classes I can take and I really want to. I've always wanted to work with fondant.

I just love cupcakes! I've been craving them lately so I need to head to my local gourmet cupcake shop soon!

Ladytink - I don't know what it is about cupcakes but I love them too. I would rather have a cupcake over a cake anyday..even though I know technically they are the same thing. go figure....

So pretty! You did a great job on them, Kris. I almost wouldn't want to eat them. Almost.

Literary Feline - haha..trust me they did get eaten. I can't wait till I have to bake again so I can practice what I learned.
