My next step was to buy a Wilton decorating set with practice sheets and a practice board. It went better, but I still need lots of practice!
|Not pretty, but it was good practice.|
My focus right now is accumulating good cupcake recipes and learning how to decorate the cupcakes. I bought some buttercream frosting from the store to use on a few old cupcakes I was about to throw out. Here are a few pictures of that first attempt:
|Haha! Not too good, right?!|
|These are a little better|
I decided I would make cupcakes for my husband's graduation. He loves anything lime flavored so I decided on margarita graduation cupcakes. I had found several recipes online but the one I decided on turned out horribly! I don't know what went wrong but the cupcakes didn't rise like they should have and turned out very doughy. I've never had a recipe turn out so bad (well, one that I was following!). Needless to say, I ran to the store to get what I needed and made a different recipe for my margarita cupcakes the next morning. I made lime buttercream frosting, prepared my 16in decorating bag with a 1M decorating tip, and frosted the cupcakes successfully!
|Aren't they pretty?|
|And delicious too!|
