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
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.
