Decorated to look just like a hamburger, these cupcakes are put together using un-iced vanilla cupcakes lightly sprinkled with sesame seeds for the buns, a chocolate cupcake layer for the meat, yellow fondant for the cheese and slather of red icing for the sauce.
Ask her to marry you in fondant. Spell out his name or age in the fluffy sponge. Cupcakes are commonly used to make a statement or sell a product and each tiny cake can be decorated with a letter, number or picture to fit the overall statement.
Use fondant to ice your cupcakes as characters like the Cookie Monster, Batman and Garfield or to fit the theme of your special occasion.
Use your cupcakes to build a shape like a caterpillar, alligator, snake or choo train.
Tier your cupcakes into a tree shape for an impressive edible monument. You can use cake pillars and a combination of larger cake tiers to complete your desired shape and size.
Decorate your cupcakes depending on the holiday. Red and green for Christmas, black cats and pumpkins for Halloween, turkey designs for Thanksgiving and stars and stripes for Independence Day.
The sky is the limit when it comes to designing cupcake creations for your next special occasion.
Just remember, some quick cupcake tricks:
Fill your cupcake wells no more than 1/2 full before baking.
Spray your cupcake pan with non-stick oil first.
Mix your cupcake batter only lightly to avoid chewy cupcakes.
Use ingredients at room temperature only!
Use a toothpick to ensure the center of your cooking cakes is done.
Use a piping bag when icing.
If you need a spatula, make sure its flimsy rubber only.
