Did you know you can decorate several cupcakes with only one piping tip? All you need is buttercream or frosting of your choice, food colouring in your desired colours. A piping bag, a clip or similar to seal your bag and as in this demonstration only one piping tip. A Wilton tip 1M.
In this demonstration I used my Smooth Buttercream frosting piped on my extra moist and Fluffy Vanilla Cupcakes.. If you are after achieving the brightest and most vivid colours for your cupcake or cake decorating project I would recommend using my Smooth Buttercream recipe. If what you are looking for is a silky, not too sweet and exquisitely delicate but stable frosting, then try my Swiss Meringue Buttercream frosting recipe.
Watch my full how to piping technique video using Wilton Tip 1M.
Items you will need:
-Frosting of choice
-12 Cupcakes (Fluffy Vanilla Cupcakes Recipe)
-Food colouring (I used Wilton Gel Food Colors) Rose, Creamy Peach, Violet, Teal and White White Icing colour.
-Piping Bags (I used 12″ sized bags)
-Food clip or similar to seal your piping bag.
-A spoon, butter knife or cake decorating spatula.
-Bowls to keep your frosting separate for different colours.
-Cling wrap to keep your frosting sealed.
