Cup cakes – practise makes perfect

I’ve always wanted to learn how to ice cakes properly, from the plain but perfectly finished hard icings to faultless buttercream swirls. I’ve been following a few websites from cup cake experts, in particular Fair Cakes through facebook run by Shikhita who just makes the buttercream swirls look so amazingly easy but aren’t!

I haven’t worked out how to make these perfect swirls yet but I’m going on a course run by Shikhita in May to learn more about baking the perfect cup cake and making buttercream and fondant decorations. I can’t wait!
