A combination of different decorating techniques can alter the look of your cupcakes tremendously. It is all about selecting the product which works best for your requirement. The easiest of decorating techniques not only for cupcakes but also for other desserts involves using butter cream. This one can be manipulated very easily to churn up a myriad of designs that will enhance the delicious taste of your cupcakes. The problem with butter cream is that it has to be kept in low temperatures in order to hold up. It melts awfully fast.
To solve this problem, you can employ the use of royal icing or fondant. Royal icing is good but you have to get the right consistency in order for it to be easily manipulated. The same case applies when you are using fondant and gum paste to decorate your cupcakes. Nevertheless, once you have grasped the basics of using these two: royal icing and fondant, you will find it real easy to decorate your cup cakes.
If you follow my advice, your cupcakes will look soo good, people wont just want to eat them, they will want to have an affair with them! LOL
Pair your professionally decorated cupcakes with a nice bouquet of flowers, and you are golden. Amazing Flowers Miami is my preferred vendor, since they can use cupcakes inside their flower arrangements. They send flowers all over south florida, and in my opinion, they are the best florists in Bal Harbour (where I live).
