How to Ice your cupcakes with a Piping Bag

When you have mixed your cupcake icing, spoon it into your icing bag whilst gently holding the piping bag open. You may want to spoon it in near the nozzle - try not to get it around the top or sides, otherwise the job will be messy from the beginning! Choose your preferred icing nozzle. Finer nozzles will give sharper points on the icing stars.

Squeeze the icing to the nose, just like when you squeeze a tube of toothpaste from the end. Then you are ready to decorate. Firstly, think about the icing pattern that you would like to decorate. You could do horizontal stripes, or zig zags. Also, you can do circular swirls either going from the outside in or starting from the middle and going inside out.

The outside in movement is possibly the most difficult to get right, but it looks lovely once you have perfected it. Start your icing from the outside and try to do a continuous movement until you get to the middle. When you get to the middle, STOP squeezing BEFORE you finish. When you stop squeexing and are ready to finish the cupcake, press down and lift back up. This should leave a nice little 'star' shape in the middle of your cupcake.

When you are done, you can then think about adding the finishing touches. Candy flowers are great for keeping in with the floral cupcake liners. Also, try sprinkling some colored cupcake sanding sugar.
