The sun is shining, and the weather is warm. Doesn’t it just make you feel happier? And we have another upcoming Bank Holiday to enjoy on 28th May! We’re keeping our fingers crossed for amazing weather for the long bank holiday weekend here at Sprinkles & Co. And while we’re at it, we want to share a fun decorating tip that just radiates sunshine – Watermelon Cupcakes!
Our Watermelon Cupcakes are just too cute! Not only do they look delectable, but they are also pretty simple to recreate. Squeeze in some of our Cake Décor Super-Strength Green Colour Gel to your preferred cupcake mix and bake as per recipe. We used our Large Premium Green Cupcake Cases for a cohesive look.
While the cupcakes are cooling, make your buttercream frosting and add Cake Décor Super-Strength Pink Colour Gel. Pipe a swirl onto each cupcake.
Tip: To pipe a perfect swirl, use a large star nozzle. Hold the bag vertically and pipe a ring of icing around the edge of the cupcake first. Pipe a smaller ring on top of the first ring. Stop applying pressure when the bag is in the centre of the swirl, then push the bag down and lift up to finish.
To complete the watermelon look, use our Cake Décor Dark Chocolate Chips and apply directly onto the pink buttercream. And there you have it, a wonderful treat resembling a fruity summer favourite!
Have a go yourself, and make sure to share your bakes with us. We love seeing them!
