Friday's Baking - Cupcakes!

These are my first attempts at decorating cupcakes this year.

I totally 'cheated' and used a Betty Crocker cake mix for the cupcakes. I also used Betty Crocker frosting...

Please remember, I don't do this for a living, I barely do it as a hobby.

I'll get there!

First Attempt - Traditional (in my mind) Swirl

Second Attempt

Third Attempt - Smilie Face! (I was getting frustrated at this point.)

Fourth & Fifth Attempts - I call them, "Alien Cupcakes!"

Number 5 is my favorite. I did pretty well with the sideways swirls too I think.
