Icing bag tips that is. I want my icing swirls to be more voluptuous.
I should clarify that the client has asked for these cupcakes to be iced with the minimum amount of buttercream, and yes, she does want fuschia pink ( sweetrosie prefers a paler shade of pink herself)
There is a reason the icing does not extend to the edges of the cakes ( client specs again) and trying to find the right tip for the job has been a bit tricky. I am using a small star tip with extra large disposable icing bags at the moment.
Now there was another fabulous ebay buy – 100 extra large disposable icing bags, posted all the way from Honkers, for $10 bucks! I was paying .65c each in the cake decorating shop.
The decoration is to be a small amount of sprinkles only.
I want to do them the “American Way” – buttercream piled up as big as your head in huge swirls.
I don’t know if anyone eats all the icing/frosting when it’s done like that? It seems like a huge amount, but hey, it looks fabulous.
These babies have been collected, the kitchen is clean again and I’m ready for the weekend!
