Cupcake Decorating Made Easy

Plain Cupcakes No More

There are numerous ways to decorate your cupcakes. The recipe can be easy. A Duncan Hines or Pillsbury cupcake mix and some canned frosting makes a light and tasty treat! Everyone enjoys a homemade recipe! What sets your cupcake apart from all the others is the decorations. Decorating a cupcake is no longer simple, but has become a work of art. The decorations draw interest to your baked dessert by appealing to the visual senses. Color and design add flair to a simple cupcake!

While roaming the isles of my local grocery store, I discovered some unique candles for cupcakes. Designed to look like miniature cupcakes, these decorations sparked my interest. I stored them for future use. While fixing a plate of cupcakes to take to my newly married son and his lovely bride, I remembered the candles I had tucked away. They added the needed color and flair to my creations.


A New Discovery

Looking for new cupcake decorations has now become a hobby. Last weekend I found a new venue of decorations for those special occasion cupcakes. The merchant was selling cupcake decoration boxes with themes. Included in each package were paper cupcake holders with matching theme decorations. For instance, the Fourth of July box held red, white and blue cupcake papers and tiny flags to sit on top of the cupcake. There were several selections for birthday parties and Holidays. What a cute idea!

I have noted that many of the grocery stores are now carrying a limited supply of themed cupcake wraps on their shelves. I am sure that the Party Stores have picked up on this idea with their immense selection of party items.

For Every Occasion, Decorate

Flair for Fun

Tasty cupcakes are easy to make. Whether you are using an old family recipe or a boxed recipe, make sure that your cakes are moist and tasty. Don't forget to make them special by adding some decorations. Grocery stores sell sprinkles of all types and colors that will color your creations and add interest and appeal. Sprinkle white icing with chocolate sprinkles for the chocolate lovers.

Use your creativity and be adventuresome. Show you care with a flair! Have fun!
