My girls normally will take a knife, spread the icing on, and add sprinkles or colored sugar to the top--nothing fancy, and everyone loves them.
Bake It Pretty, recently sent us their Best Ever Cup Cake Icing Kit. This kit included everything we needed, well, everything the girls needed to make some very decorative cupcakes.
The Best Ever Cupcake Icing Kit includes:
::Closed Star Tip
::Super Star Tip
::One 16″ pastry bag made of lightweight, double-coated polyurethane with a reinforced bottom, stitched border and hanging loop
*We also got a few cupcake liners that were sent along with the kit.
The girls started with the icing bag, they rolled it more than half way down, inserted the tip and then added the icing.
Next was the fun part, time to decorate! They had so much fun experimenting, icing the cupcakes from the edge to the middle part and vice versa. The girls determined the cupcakes looked better when they iced the cup cakes from middle to the edge.
Next they topped a few of the cupcakes with pink sugar! And then we all enjoyed them!
