Pink Cupcakes

For this Saturday, I decided to post my Easy Cup Cake Design.........so easy, you can do it with your eyes closed and your hands tied behind your back......well, sort of, kind of, but not really.

Imagine showing up to your next scrapbook party or girl's night out with these beauties.......

Don't these look like the cutest pink and black cupcakes ever??? even my husband admired them for a bit!!! A while back I brought home a button down striped shirt one day for him but he wouldn't wear it because one of the stripes looked pink! OMG, hunny, really. The shirt looked so good on him but, the man would not wear it.

By the way, if you want to join a scrapbook group or a crafty group or whatever suits your fancy, check out this web site http://www.meetup.com/ , just don't ask me how many groups I belong to 'couse I don't want my hubby to freak out if he reads this post.....trust me, my "mommy time" is fully booked ladies.

Back to the cupcakes, the cupcake on the left on the picture above turned out a little crooked, but that's because I used the new Reynolds foil baking cups. You don't need a cupcake baking dish when you use the Reynold's foil cups but you have to make sure there is enough room between the foil cups on your baking sheet, otherwise, they will squeeze each other and look like that.

To make the cute desing on the cupcake, first you frost your cupcake using any frosting you have. Next, you draw lines with a decorating gel with a thin tip going accross. You can use as many lines as you'd like, the more lines you use, the more intricate your design will be.

Then, you take a clean toothpick and drag the tip going from top to bottom in a straight line.
Do this a few times on your cupcake wiping your toothpick clean each time on a wet cloth.

You can also make different colored stripes, it'd be so cute for Easter!!!!

Once you run the tip of your toothpick down, it will look like this:

Next, take the toothpick and drag the opposite way, from bottom to top, in between the lines you just created. Use the tip of the toothpick and remember to wipe it clean each time.

Your cupcake will look like this, super cute:

  1. Happy Pink Saturday! This is my first and I'm having a blast! Love the cupcakes. I tried my hand at cake decorating years ago and I feel your pain. I get too nervous when I try decorating because my mind goes blank about what and how to decorate and what everyone is going to say about it. I finally hung it up and left it to the professionals.

  2. What yummy looking treats. I was out of town last week and didn't get to welcome you, so I want to say a big "Welcome," and Happy Pink Saturday to you.

  3. oh yummie look fabulous! Have a appy pink saturday

  4. I would love having on of your pink cupcakes. I will just leave the baking to you as I do not do much of that anymore. It is hard to cook for one. You have a very nice blog.

  5. Bee-You-Tee-Full! I am drooling pink and it's dripping off my pink chin. What a lovely post. I came by "How Sweet the Sound" to link up and found that this is not a linky party like the others. I left a note to be included next week, so for now I'm leaving a "link to my pink"...


    Hope you can stop by!
    until later...
    big pink hug!

  6. Hang in there on the cake decorating, it takes PPP, practice, practice and practice. Love the pink cupcakes, I may have to steal that idea for my frosted cookies later this afternoon. Only in greens for a belated St Patty's Day party.

    Come visit me at Decorating My Tin Shack, I'm having a give away.

    Happy Pink Saturday.

  7. I loved,loved your story. I know how frustrating cake decorating is for me and I too have though about a chair or hammer. But I would so love to take a cake class. What great fun to be able to do all those beautiful designs. I loved your cupcakes and thank you for showing how to do them. Happy Pinks..

  8. Your tasty pink treats look so good!!! =) Thank you for visiting my blog today, and Happy Pink Saturday!

  16. Neat! They remind me of peacock feathers (if peacock feathers were pink). These are lovely and I can't believe you achieved that elegant look with a toothpick and gel....I'm definitely trying this one!
