I got a new frosting tip!

Just wanted to share the joy that is the 1M frosting tip. It's been a long time coming, and I've been making do with other tips, which are fine, but don't make the cupcake look nearly as glamorous as the ones in the magazines.


Vanilla with Vanilla buttercream.

Chocolate with Chocolate buttercream

See how the chocolate one has more defined ridges and just looks a bit fancier somehow? Sadly I don't have pictorial evidence of using the 1A tip to do the chocolate frosting, but it's just a plain smooth tip and makes it look like cartoon dog poo on a cupcake. I mean, we know it's chocolate and all, but this is definitely preferable. So, if you don't have one, go get the 1M tip. It's pretty magical. Also, be prepared for so many more cupcakes. I'm planning on some good Christmas (LUSH!) themed ones.


  1. RAWR. I need to find a GOOD gluten-free cupcake recipe. Those are making me crave so hard like the sugar junky I am,

  2. Very nice! I can't make pretty frosting at ALL.

  3. Pretty! I like the edges. I need more icing tips.
