Cupcakes are without a doubt one of my favorite desserts! They are the perfect size and, if paired with the right icing, they can fulfill even the sweetest cravings :) Today we are featuring how to make a super fluffy and delicious, homemade buttercream. Also, check out a super easy way of making your summer cupcakes look this awesome! Only two super simple steps!
Buttercream Ingredients (24 cupcakes)
Place your buttercream into a decorating bag. Make sure that your cupcakes are not hot before you start decorating or the icing will melt. The initial decoration is up to you. I chose to go with this super simple bubly design. If you would like to do this one, simply Hold Open your decorating bag approximately 1/4" above cupcake top at a 90° angle to cupcake surface. Pipe a ball of icing and stop the pressure. Then do the same on top but make this one a smaller ball. You might need to try this a couple times before you get it but once you do, you will see how incredibly simple this technique is.
With a sharp knife, cut a lemon in thin half slices as shown below.
Then, simply arrange your lemon slices on your cupcakes to your angle of preference. Done again! How simple and how cute is this? Enjoy <3
