For one of my good friend's birthday, I baked chocolate cupcakes with vanilla and chocolate swirl frosting. I finally decided to invest in frosting tips so cheers to my first try! I'm going to admit that I'm in love with those tips! I'm pretty pleased with my first experience, and it has definitely got me wondering why I hadn't bought them before.
After baking the cupcake batter, I let them cool for about 10 minutes before using a knife to cut out circles in the center of each cupcake. I filled the frosting bag with vanilla and chocolate frosting and pumped it into each hole. To prevent the frosting from melting, I stuck the cupcakes into the refrigerator to keep their shape before giving them to my friend.
To Andy, who has been there for me since the seventh grade, happy birthday!
