Here are three of my favorite cupcake recipes:

How to decorate with frosting:

I use an 846 decorator tip.  Note:  This is not a Wilton tip.  It looks like this:

Frosting - 846 Tip

Here is one place you can buy:  Here  You can also find something similar locally — just find a tip with a wider opening.  Place a piece of parchment or wax paper on your counter and play – you can always place the frosting back in the bag once you decide which way you’d like to decorate your cupcakes.  Note:  Several craft stores are now selling cake boxes so you can take you masterpieces where they need to be in style.

You’ll also need a coupler and pastry bags which can be purchased at craft or cake stores.
