Cupcakes for an "8 is Great" Birthday!

Happy Birthday Kathryn!
Cupcakes are chocolate and vanilla with a vanilla buttercream frosting. I used a Russian Ball Piping Tip for the flower and a yellow candy melt for the center. Tinker Bell fairy wings hand piped by my assistant Emma-Lea.

Cupcake Thursday! Practicing with new Russian Piping Tips

  Have you seen these new Russian Piping tips the ones with the ball tips? I just received mine in the mail. I decided to try them out this morning. Not wanting to waist expensive ingredients on practicing I used canned frosting. The consistency was a little to soft but worked ok, but I don't recommend using canned frosting for a finished product. I watched a few tutorials on YouTube and found them educational. I found the tips easy to use after some practice. Also I think the little tins they came in are cute. I ordered my tips on Amizon.
