I’ve always been more of a muffin fan than a cupcake fan. I find cupcakes are overly sweet but I really wanted to try my hand at piping so i decided to make some. I had a lot of fun piping but I quickly learnt that I should have probably waited until the cupcakes were completely cooled before applying icing. As you can see, in some of the pictures below, that the icing started to melt and warp. That being said, I was surprisingly proud at my first attempt at decorating cupcakes. Now that I know I can make them somewhat appealing, I will try to make my own cupcakes, from scratch, in the future.
For these cupcakes, I bought boxed vanilla cake mix and pre-made cream cheese icing. I really want to try and make fun flavors like matcha, rose, lavender, and green tea in the future! Even though some of you will probably silently curse me, I also want to try and make ‘healthier’ cupcakes or I’ll just make yummy muffins that I decorate with cream cheese icing (or something of that sort).
