Wilton I – Cupcakes (Class 3)

Today at my Wilton class, I learned how to make figures, shell borders and drop flowers.  The cupcakes I made for the class were dreadful…they were chocolate sponge and just were NOT good (Wilton recipe…blech).  The dark chocolate buttercream, however…yum.
I made…
this radical clown:

this happy little smiley face:

and these cute little flowers:

Dark Chocolate Buttercream Icing

1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
1 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups sifted confectioner’s sugar
4-5 tablespoons milk

-Cream shortening and butter.
-Add cocoa and vanilla.
-Gradually add sugar, one cup at a time on low to medium speed and mix until combined.
-Add milk and beat until fluffy.

    Your clown is so cute!! I want to learn drop flowers too, we don’t learn them in our class, so you may have to teach me. 🙂

    Thanks girls!! Suzy, I really thought I would hate it. I found it a little weird, but he came out really cute! Nina – it’s so easy! You just need the right tip, I think it’s Wilton D23?
