The question of how to ice a cupcake well is probably the thing I get asked the most. It’s one of things that’s quite hard to describe; you need to see it to really get it. So here’s a video with lots of tips on how to achieve the perfectly iced cupcake.
And if you’re looking for recipes here are a few cupcake recipes of mine I can recommend; caramel coffee cupcakes, coffee and walnut cupcakes, love cupcakes, lemon meringue snowman cupcakes, After Eight cupcakes, banana and custard cupcakes, Octonauts cupcakes, two tone icing cupcakes, Simnel cupcakes, chocolate cherry cupcakes, Mars chocolate cupcakes, Chocolate cupcakes with truffle icing, Lemon cupcakes with zingy Italian meringue buttercream, carrot cake baked in a cup, Thomas fairy cakes, moonuts, froggy cupcakes or just plain but quite wonderful vanilla cupcakes.
And if you fancy a challenge check out this video of me trying to ice the highest cupcake I can… can you go any higher? Answers on a blog post answer or youtube video please!

You would not believe how timely this post was for me!… this evening I was manning a cupcake decorating stall at our church ladies’ evening. I’m a frequent cupcake maker but my preferred decorating method has always been to spoon and spread the frosting (as in the Hummingbird book I first learnt from) and I had never piped frosting/buttercream before tonight! I came across this post via Facebook this afternoon and was able to go confidently this evening, ice two demonstration cakes for my stall and then pass on your tips to all the other novice pipers who came along. The most valuable piece of advice by far was to start further out than you think you need to and we really noticed the difference with the ones who didn’t. Thank you so much Holly, your crash course made me a tutor in the space of an afternoon!
