How to Decorate Your Cupcakes~

If u're too lazy to decorate the cuppies,how about a scoop of buttercream and big sugar beads??or any kind of nut?? Make sure the cuppies aren't warm before you put the buttercream.It'll melt and becomes sticky .

Decorate your cuppies before you bake.
The cupcake or muffin that aren't baked yet,you can sprinkle with sugar,nuts,dried fruits or fresh fruits like apples and pic.Parmesan cheese are suitable for a less sweet muffin. Anything you like but make sure that you didn't put something heavy cause it may sink to the bottom.


The easiest way to to decorate the cupcake or muffin(if you're REALLY,REALLY lazy) is to sprinkle some icing sugar or cocoa powder onto the muffin or cupcake.

This fondant can be coloured and shaped.You can buy the ready-made one.You can also make your own!

Chocolate decoration
  • Chocolate rolls or shavings:

Pour some melted chocolate onto a baking sheet and spread with palette knife.Leave until just firm.Use a long,sharp knife to push across the surface of the chocolate at 25-45 angle,curling off a thin scroll of chocolate as you go.
