Besides flooding cookies with royal icing, I’m starting to play around with flooding on parchment paper and using the results as decorations for cupcakes etc.
Peggy Porschen’s book, Beautiful Cakes, inspired me to try these butterflies for my chocolate cupcake embellishments. They’re relatively easy to make, and I especially like the classic colors she chose; blue and brown. I also tried one of my fave color combinations… Can you tell what it is by my blog design? 😉
If you’d like to try these cupcakes, you can find a video on making the icing swirl and the recipes I used here. One thing to note, is that what kind of chocolate chips you use makes a difference in colour. I used milk chocolate chips for these.
Have fun baking & decorating!
