How to Create Swirly Frosted Cupcakes


Do you long to know how master cake decorators get swirly frosting just right on cupcakes?  Here is our swirly frosting 101 lesson!

Start with buttercream icing. You will also need a 1M open star cake decorating tip which you can buy at Bakery Sugarcraft, as well as disposable cake piping bags which you can purchase at any supermarket.

Step 1: 


Hold Open Star Decorating Tip 1M approximately 0.5 – 1 cm above cupcake top at a 90° angle to cupcake surface. Pipe a spiral of icing, beginning at the outer edge and working inward.

Step 2:


Stop pressure; pull tip away.

Step 3:



Pipe a second spiral, smaller (not as wide) on top. End spiral at centre. Stop pressure; pull tip straight up and away.


Voila.  Now you can create some beautiful cupcakes like these amazing creations!
