I don’t have a tip number as I have bought these piping tips in a store here in Denmark. You can find great piping tips for cupcake swirls here: http://www.bakeitpretty.com/best-ever-cupcake-icing-kit/

My baking time really depends on what recipe I use. I find that banana cupcakes takes a little longer than a vanilla even if they are mini. But usually the baking time are 5-10 mins shorter. Remember that ovens also bake differently.

I cannot find anything here in the US listed as that size. Do you have the tip number? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Also, when making mini cupcakes, how long do you bake them compared to regular size cupcakes? Thank you!

Michelle

There are also many great cupcake books on the market. Take a look at my Amazon book store where you can find a list only regarding cupcakes. All cake decorating stores have all what you need for baking and decorating but also more special ingredients. The rest can you get from the supermarket.

I would not use whipped cream. Have you tried to mix some buttercream with ganache? Its really nice. I mix it 50/50

First, I have learned a lot from your page and your tutorial are very clear and neat. Can you substitute the buttercream with ganache or whipped cream? Somebody mentioned adding piping gel to stabilize it..any thoughts? I just don’t like buttercream at all.

This helps to firm up the flowers and hold the shape aswell. You cna make the flowers a couple of weeks before and let them dry in the cupboard. I would not put the flowers on the cupcakes before a couple of hours they are being served.

first of all I`d like to say your blog is beautiful and truly informative! I have a question regarding the gum paste flowers. I am getting married in July and will be making my own cupcakes (small wedding, 30 cupcakes needed). I was planning on doing the butter cream icing and adding gumpaste flowers. How do you keep them from sinking into the butter cream…
thanks!

I liken piping to golf, you can have a great game one week and the next, it’s like you’ve never played before. I have done some pretty good piping at times, then for some reason it just doesn’t look so good the next time. I also like your flowers. Which cutter have you used?
Thanks
Kathy

Have a question tho-I make a buttercream swirl as above then put a small fondant decoration on top. I store it in a carboard box but when i come to it the next day the fondant decoration is sticky and soggy plus the colour usually runs into the buttercream :s Any advice would be much appreciated!
