Cupcake Decorating Tutorial

The Story:

Did you like my post last week about piping tips?  Well guess what, there is a video tutorial to go along with it!

As a side note. the person that serenades you in the video during the intro and at the end is one of my best friends, Katie.  Don’t you sort of hate her because she is so gorgeous?

    I heard your little news story in the radio the other day! I’m happy your blog and business are doing well. It only makes sense that it would since I haven’t ever made a recipe of your that didn’t impress everyone. Congrats!

    What was the brand name of the piping bag? Not the best speakers on this laptop. Thanks, love your tutorials. I’m new at piping.

    Both of you look absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I am jealous. I love the song she sang. What is the name? Can I able to hear the entire song somewhere?

      The name of the original sing is “Shine” but this version was done by Noteworthy, an a cappella that I was in a few years ago. So technically you hear me singing too! The song is on itunes

      • xiaoxi says:

        Wow!! You can sing, too?! You can bake, write, broad cast and sing. You are so talented. I saw Noteworthy performance on youtube, today, I was impressed. You guys are so awesome.

    Hi Lizzy

    I was wondering where is the best place to buy the tips? I live in Hawaii so they aren’t too many options here, I checked Amazon but I didn’t find a set with all the numbers. 🙁
    Thanks so much!

    I use your recipes like crazy! I was browsing around on your site today and found both this tutorial and your announcement. So excited for you! I don’t have a business or anything but just fell in love with baking cupcakes. The first cupcake I made back in November (fancy one that is) was your Andes Mint cupcakes. My hubby totally adores these cupcakes and wants me to make them for him to take to work. I love making people happy with cupcakes. Thanks so much for the tutorial and I cannot wait for your cookbook!!

    Lizzy, I am loving all your recipes and piping tips. Any special tweak I need to do to create the rose top? It went kind of fast on the video. I, too, can not find the tips you have. I really need a large round one and the local craft stores here only carry Wilton. I have been dabbling with cupcakes for a year or so now, but have really been displeased with the piping tips that are available. I am now going to search the web, now I have some tip numbers to look for. PS I am attempting your almond Joy cupcakes for a cookout I am going to, wish me luck.

      Good luck on the almond joys! They are so good! Yes, it can be hard to finr the right pipig tips unless you order online or find specialty decorating stores. Ateco #809 is the large round tip. For the rose, just start in the center and pipe a swirl out towards the rim. Practice practice practice! And then you will be a pro

    How do you get your liners to stay so vibrant? Do you put a white one in first? You can rarely tell what the pattern is on mine!
