Cupcake Fun

I am a big fan of cupcakes. Chocolate, vanilla, rainbow, carrot, red velvet, you name it. In my opinion, it is not only the taste of the cupcake that matters, but also the presentation. How a cupcake is decorated can make it more appealing to the eye. I like to be creative, I enjoy arts and crafts, interior design, writing, decorating, etc. so of course I take quite a liking to decorating cakes and cupcakes.

The presentation of a cake or cupcake does not have to be this difficult, mind-blowing design with different colours and special effort, it can be very simple yet pleasing. Using different icing tips and a steady hand is the easiest way to make a treat look even better. And of course using coloured icing and a dash of fun sprinkles or edible pearls on top always gives your cupcakes that little bit extra.

If you are feeling a little adventurous, fondant can always be fun to try. Although it can be difficult to work with, it can turn your treat into an elegant dessert. Fondant can be coloured with food colouring (wear gloves, it is messy to mix in), and patterns can be pressed into the topping with knives, forks or toothpicks. Fondant is like working with playdough, it can be molded into flowers and other designs like graduation hats or baby rattles. Fondant is a great way to “accessorize” your cupcake.

If you are not comfortable with fancy designs or molding fondant, just add sprinkles or use coloured icing appropriate to the occasion. If people do not eat them, they are simply missing out on a delicious dessert.
