TÓp 1Ó: MÓthers’ Day Cupcake Decorations
Show the matriarchs how deeply you appreciate them this Mothers’ Day with a delicious treat package in the most convenient container.
The Quatro 3.5L comfortably fits at least ten cupcakes and clips shut on all four sides, making it airtight and leak proof. On its own, it’s the perfect gift. But adding cupcakes that you’ve made and decorated yourself makes it so much more meaningful.
Here’s a list of our favourite cupcake decorating methods:
You will need:
- Homemade or store-bought cupcakes
- Icing: Buttercream & Chocolate
- Food colourants
- A butterknife and a spoon
- Toppings: Sprinkles, Oreos, melted chocolate
Grab a spoon and top your cupcakes with a dollop of icing.
Simple & Smooth
Place the icing on your cupcake and use the flat end of a knife to smoothen it out.
Place a dollop icing on your cupcake, spread it with the back of a spoon, and cover it with sprinkles.
Mash up an Oreo into your icing and then lather it onto your cupcake. Take another Oreo and prop it on top.
Cover the cupcake in a thick layer of icing, making sure that it is completely evened out. Using a butter knife, press the point down around the edge. Apply even pressure and swirl towards the centre of the cupcake.
Black and White Swirl
This involves the same technique used in the classic swirl. However, when placing the icing on the cupcake, add one dollop of plain buttermilk icing and one of chocolate icing.
Once again, this involves the same technique used in the classic swirl. Divide your icing into three bowls and add a different colour to each before layering it atop your cupcake. Then proceed to swirl the icing.
Black and White
Take your chocolate and vanilla (plain buttermilk) icings and each to one half of the cupcake.
Use food colouring (pink preferably) to create a thick ring around the circumference of the cupcake. Garnish with sprinkles!
Apply a smooth layer of plain icing, ensuring that it is thin and even. Drizzle melted chocolate over it.
We hope you enjoy these delicious decorations!
Happy MÓthers’ Day!
