I've foolishly agreed to making ice cream cone cupcakes for a bake sale this week. Is there a ready made icing which comes ready to pipe into a sort of Mr Whippy style - which actually tastes nice? The last one I got came in a tin and was fairly easy to decorate with but tasted yuck. I know I could make my own but I'm not very skilled with a piping bag!
Papa, even without piping skills you could still make your own buttercream, sooo much nicer than that awful stuff you buy in supermarkets, its only butter and icing sugar whipped up for 10mins or do til light and fluffy, give it a go.
Thanks Nanny. I agree that real buttercream is sooooo much nicer than shop bought stuff. I just don't know how to pipe it so it looks like a Mr Whippy!! Do I need to buy and bag and nozzle and get practicing??
Yep, don't be nervous just get in there and have a go, everyone has to start somewhere, buy the bigger type nozzles for piping big swirls, like an open star nozzle, start around the outside and swirl til round up in the middle, easy honestly.
