Basic Cupcake Decorating Tools

It isn't necessary to have any special tools when decorating cupcakes.

A simple table knife will work perfectly for smoothing frosting onto your cupcakes.

But if you want to add a special touch, or a more elaborate design, it helps to have a few supplies such as:

  • Pastry Bag
  • Assorted Tips
  • metal spatula

  • Flower Cupcakes



    Creating a pretty flower can be as simple as a few swirls of frosting, or an elaborate skill that takes some tools and practice.

    Pre-made sugar flowers can also be purchased from a cake decorating supplier.

    Flowers are always a happy choice for special occasions such as birthdays, showers, weddings, and tea parties.

    Polka Dot

    Polka dots can be created using dot sprinkles, or can be piped from frosting.




    Polka dots can be made from round candies, wafers, round sprinkles, or icing dots.




    Halloween is one of the most fun of holidays for making cupcakes. These little cakes are perfect for grade school parties, church or home Halloween parties. Decorating cupcakes can be part of the party fun if you provide some frosting, sprinkles, and freshly baked cupcakes. It can be a bit messy, so be prepared!
