Pipe on the cupcakes
You can use a blow torch to toast the tops if you like
Feriel modified and instead of the marshmallow frosting used a creamed cheese frosting and piped it in rosettes.
TIPS AND TRICKS
- Ziploc bags! Use a Ziploc bag to pipe the batter into the cupcake holders, as it is much easier than spooning and spreading each layer.
- Looking for stunning and perfect white frosting rather use shortening over butter, although, *personal preference*, I think butter tastes better than shortening.
- Be cautious, DO NOT overbake the cupcakes, as you for sure DO NOT want the tops turning brown.
- In order to get that perfect and beautiful star, you should use a large closed star decorating tip.
