If you are good with a pastry bag, you can create many different designs with just the icing alone. The swirl of icing on top of each delicious can be modified to create flowers or leaves, or any other item from your imagination. The icing can be tinted in so many colorful ways, including varied colors of the rainbow all on one cupcake. Although cupcakes normally have a frosting of some kind, other cupcakes can have just a glaze and still be tasteful and appealing. Consider a zesty lemon glaze on a vanilla cupcake with a lemon cream centre. Add a bit of slivered candied lemon to decorate and you have a truly scrumptious beautiful cupcake. You can also try a caramel glaze that would be very tasty. You can use just about anything you can dream up to top your cupcakes and make them unique and attractive. The baking or bulk food stores carry many ideas. They have little shaped candies that can add color, whimsy and a bit of crunch to your cupcake toppings. You can add chopped nuts, cut up chocolate candy bars or slivered candied peel to add a little more flavor to your cupcakes. You can mold your own figures or designs from modeling chocolate to create fanciful cupcakes, or you can use marzipan in various shaped designs. Try using cookie cutters for shaping your cupcake cut-outs.
Many viewers began making the trek to this fabled Manhattan bakery to see for themselves and now cupcake shops are springing up all over the country. Alright, now you’re curious as to what the name of this gourmet cupcake bakery is . . . okay, I’ll give it to you. It’s called the Magnolia bakery. Now that you know about it, I’m sure you can’t wait to visit, but before you go, realize that you’ll be standing in a long line to get your cupcake groove on. Fortunately, there are several wonderful cupcake shops in New York City, like the fabulous Crumbs, that can satisfy your cravings.
If you are making cupcakes for a wedding, shower or other elegant event, you may consider purchasing edible flowers to top your cupcakes and make them extra special. Flowers like the English Daisy, Chrysanthemums, Gardenias, Marigolds, Pansies or Roses are all good choices. If you are adding real flowers to adorn your cupcakes, do make sure that the flowers are edible and not poisonous. Another way to add a bit of crunch to your cupcake toppings is with crushed up cereal. Sweetened cereals can be swirled in a food processor or chopped up with your knife (depending how fine you want it) and sprinkled over the top of your cupcake icing to add texture and a little more sweetness. Cereals that you may want to consider are honey-granola types of cereals (that include crunchy bits as well as some types of nuts), and cereals like Alpha Bits, Honey Bunches of Oats or Frosted Flakes.
So you’re planning a birthday party for your little toddler and are looking for really creative cupcakes you can make. Or maybe you just feel like baking cupcakes one day! Either way, there are some really adorable kids cupcakes out there. Before you start looking for cute kids cupcakes, remember you’re baking these cupcakes for toddlers; and toddlers are picky eaters! You may think I’m crazy for telling you this. There isn’t a child on earth who wouldn’t want to eat a cupcake, right? I believed that too until the day I put a cupcake in front of my 18 month old daughter and she didn’t want to eat it! So it’s important to keep this in mind when baking kids cupcakes.
