How to Decorate Purple or Pink Cupcakes
Selecting the Best Frosting
Selecting the right frosting is an important first step when decorating cupcakes.
Icings or glazes are great for some types of decorations, such as edible sugar flowers, sprinkles, colored-sugars, and for writing messages with icing.
A fluffy buttercream frosting that will hold its shape, is perfect when you want to use a frosting bag and round or star tip to make a pretty swirl of frosting.
Sometimes it's easiest to soften home-style frosting in the microwave, and dip the tops of the cupcakes before decorating.
This method provides a nice smooth surface that can be decorated in a variety of ways.
We have lots of cupcake decorating videos that you can watch to see exactly how each of these techniques can work when you are decorating cupcakes for a special occasion.
