From simple to deluxe, here are five decorating techniques to make your cupcakes wow-worthy.
Place vanilla frosting in medium bowl. Add 2 to 4 drops purple food coloring and use small rubber spatula to stir to combine.
It’s flower time! With 1 hand, squeeze pastry bag above twist to steadily push frosting out of bag. With wider side of petal tip facing down and touching top of cupcake, pipe small, circular “bud” in middle of cupcake while rotating base of cupcake with your other hand.
Place tip (with wide side still facing down) along edge of bud and squeeze pastry bag to pipe a small “petal.” Rotate cupcake using your other hand and pipe another petal, overlapping first petal by ¼ inch. Continue piping petals around bud until you return to first petal.
