In an attempt to DO more than PIN, I've challenged myself to 28 days of doing. I'm tackling 28 projects found on Pinterest in 28 days. You can see the entire collection of pins here.
Today's Pin: Cupcake Decoration and Homemade Icing
- Owl Cupcakes
- Monkey Cupcakes
- Turkey Cupcakes
- Pioneer Woman's Best Frosting Ever
- Fresh Strawberry Frosting
The Pin's Source:
- Mocha Cafe
- Big Flavors from a Tiny Kitchen
- The Pioneer Woman
- Culinary Concoctions by Peabody
Cost: Approx. $15 for all the decorating pieces, cake mix and icing.
Hours: 3 hours
Notable Comments: Out of the three "decoration" pins, the owl turned out the cutest. The monkey looked goofy to me (in a non-monkey-non-cute kinda way) and the turkey required way too much icing.
Pioneer Woman's claim to the best frosting ever was just a meh for me. It was good frosting but the best ever? [shaking my head no]. The fresh strawberry frosting on the other hand was FANTASTIC, especially on the white cupcakes I made. The only problem is the strawberry frosting requires piping (as you can see in the picture) which I'm not a big fan of only because of the clean up... remember, I'm lazy.
And did you notice my cute Day 5 Easy Cupcake Stands?
