When I was a kid, decorating cupcakes consisted of scraping on icing with a butter knife and maybe a sprinkle shaker (if you were feeling fancy). But thanks to the invention of the internet, and a new cultural appreciation for delicious, handheld treats, decorating cupcakes has become a whole lot more. But don’t let that scare you! Sometimes the most elaborate or fancy decorations are the easiest to create.
When it comes to decorating cupcakes in the modern world, my advice is to get creative. Instead of canned grocery store frosting, whip up your own buttercream. Experiment with flavors, textures, and mediums to find out what you like and don’t like. You can check out some more great options for cupcake decorating on TLC Cooking, but I encourage you to try out something new on your own! And remember: no matter how pretty a cupcake is, the most important thing about it is how it tastes!
