This basket has red velvet and chocolate cupcakes. The toppers on the chocolate cupcakes were made using the Russian piping tips I purchased from Amazon after seeing them on Pinterest and YouTube. The hardest part is getting the frosting to the right consistency. Once that is achieved, the piping isn’t hard at all. I am still working to mastering the different types of flowers.
If you like nuts and Red velvet cake then you will enjoy the taste of these moist red velvet cupcakes. The added red sprinkles give a nice balance of sweetness to the cream cheese frosting and salt from the pecans.
This is my interpretation of a fancy flower design. I used the orange and white frosting and was trying to get the white on the ends. I think they look ok but I need to work on the technique a bit more. Please like and or leave comments.
These cupcakes are loaded with carrots. I have been experimenting with different piping tools and mixing colors for frosting cupcakes. I want the cupcakes to look noticeably different although a lot of the cupcakes have cream cheese frosting. I think I will also use a different piping tip for them next time I make them. Previously, I used larger gummy carrot pieces as toppers and I see that these mini candy carrots I used on these cupcakes are much smaller than I expected.
A smash cake is the highlight of any toddler’s birthday party and I was happy to make this one. It is made with red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting. Since it is for a toddler, I reduced the amount of cream cheese in the frosting. The Baby Mickey edible image was ordered a couple days in advance. I trimmed the image, applied it to the cake and then piped a blue border on to the cake.
