Essential Tip - Jumbo Star
Extra Large Pastry Tip
I use this for decorating cakes and cupcakes. The large scale makes it easy to make beautiful desserts. Here is my post with tips for decorating this Chocolate Cake.
I think it is so fabulous to be able to make something out of nothing. I love that with a few simple ingredients (hello, cake mix!) and tools, it is possible to make something really beautiful. These hydrangea cupcakes are a great example of making something really pretty out of nothing.
I used a box cake mix for the cupcakes - no shame. To set off the color of the blue "hydrangea" I used these Brown Cupcake Papers They are taller than standard cupcake papers, but still fit into a standard 2" cupcake pan. They make a bigger cupcake, which is nice when you use this much frosting.
