So…not quite as long between this and the last post, but wow. TOO LONG!!! SORRY.
So for those of you who’ve found your way here via pinterest, here is cupcake tutorial conclusion! (finally.)
What you need to gather is…
- a small bowl (wide enough to fit your cupcake, but not so wide that you have to use tons of the colored sugar)
- colored sugar
- cupcakes (obviously)
Add a good amount of sugar to your bowl. You want the bottom to be covered, and slightly deep, maybe like 1/4″
Start by piping a mound of frosting onto your cupcake. Close to the edge, but not hanging over. You’ll be smashing it to cover the entire cupcake, so be generous. Turn the cupcake upside down and dip it into the frosting. Gently push the frosting into the sugar and kind of smoosh it around until it covers the entire cupcake. See? I didn’t smooth it out enough yet, my edges are still visible. This isn’t a perfect process, so you can easily add more frosting and repeat until it’s covered to your satisfaction. Ah, much better!
Ok, now can you make variations? Of course.
Don’t want vanilla frosting? Want to try chocolate? Will it work? Did I accidentally stick my thumb in this right before I took the picture?
Yes, and yes, you can it just changes the look a little bit.
Curious about how larger colored sprinkles would look?There were no complaints here.
They were sparkly and just right for this girl!
