Food Tech Icing Techniques
Decorating a cupcake with a swirl
Step 1
Hold tip 1M approximately ½ in. above cupcake top at a 90° angle to cupcake surface. Squeeze out icing to form a star.

Step 2

Without releasing pressure, raise tip slightly as you drop a line of icing around the star in a tight, complete rotation.
Step 3

After completing the first rotation, move tip toward centre and up and around to make a second spiral around the inside edge of the first spiral.
Step 4

Release pressure to end spiral at centre of cupcake.

Covering Cupcake with Rolled Fondant

Fondant gives your cupcakes a silky-smooth surface, perfect for displaying icing flowers, figure piping and other decorations. The formula for covering cupcakes or mini cakes completely with rolled fondant is the same as for covering cakes. Measure opposite sides and the top of cake (baked without baking cups) across the centre. Roll out fondant to that size, 1/8 in. thick. For example, a standard 2 in. wide cupcake, with two sides each 11/2 in. high, equals 5 in. diameter. It is easier to cover a cupcake bottom side up.

Steps
Step 1
Prepare cupcake by lightly covering with buttercream icing.
Step 2
Roll out fondant 1/8 in. thick to desired size.
Step 3
Cover cupcake with fondant. Trim off excess fondant at base with spatula.
Step 4
Smooth fondant around a tea cup

Icing Cupcakes with a Spatula

Covering the cupcake using buttercream with a spatula is the traditional way to ice cupcakes, neatly and quickly.

Step 1
Place a dollop of icing at the centre of the cupcake.

Step 2
Spread icing across the top, pushing toward the edges. For a smooth look, run the spatula edge across the top.

Step 3
For a fluffier look, lightly touch the iced surface with the spatula blade and lift up.

Add Colour or Flavour to Fondant

Tint a small ball or enough fondant to cover a whole cake. As with any icing, tint colours at one time; matching colours later may be difficult. Add just a

    Now that you have a proper hold on the cone, you need to take your first bite. The only issue is, your first bite should not actually be a bite! Biting down on the ice cream is the most common mistake made in eating ice cream. Instead of biting, you need to perform five major licks. Your first lick should be on the side of the ice cream opposite you. Your next two licks should be on the right and left sides of the ice cream. Which side you lick first depends on the hand with which you are holding your cone. If you are holding the cone with your right hand, lick the left side first. If you hold the cone with your left hand, lick the right…
