best-ever cupcake icing tips



Stacy LOVES making cupcakes. I can't tell you how many times I've stopped by her house and she's been making them. Lucky me, she always sends a few home for my family. Her cupcakes just got a lot more fabulous with this Best-Ever Cupcake Icing Kit from Bake It Pretty. These icing tips are ginormous!




Those of you who are frosting lovers out there will love how using these tips turns the cupcake to icing ratio to a nice 1:1. Or even 1:2. There is so much frosting on the cupcake. Can you say sugar high? My kids can, epecially since they pretty much just eat the frosting off the top. Also, if you have a jumbo muffin tin and you love to make jumbo cupcakes, your cupcakes will no longer look wimpy with tiny frosting tops and big cupcake bottoms. If you have some extra time today, spend it looking around this gal’s shop and her blog. The blog is full of amazing recipes as well as tips for using the things in her shop.


Bake It Pretty also has tons of cute baking-related items, like these cupcake boxes, perfect for a single serving (although I'm not sure the amount of frosting produced by those icing tips could really be considered a single serving).

In case you're wondering, Stacy's favorite buttercream icing recipe is from Wilton. You can't go wrong with this one! Happy baking!
