Tools and Ingredients

  • Spatula
  • Medium consistency icing


Step 1

Place a dollop of icing at the center 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.

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