A Cake made out of Cupcakes
I baked Gluten Free Cupcakes by Betty Crocker but instead of adding the oil or butter I always substitute with apple sauce. This way they are really moist and it was really cute a lot of the Moms know I love to bake and cook and they thought I made from scratch and a couple moms came to me for the recipe when I explained it was Betty Crocker Gluten Free they were quiet surprised.
Fill up a 16" icing bag with icing.
Next use Tip 789 By Wilton it is a basket weaving tip but it really gets everything together.
Make stripes of icing over cupcakes first going vertical
Next Ice Horizontal then smooth all out.
Now its time to decorate. I find easiest way is to photo copy a picture in book then cut around picture of shape.
then outline toothpick with colored icing. I used a pre purchased Wilton Icing.
Last we filled in picture with sugar crystals.
This was such a fun project to do with Miss J. I hope you enjoy decorating a cake with your kids as much as we do.
