Icing Cupcakes with a Spatula
Covering the cupcake using buttercream with a spatula is the traditional way to ice cupcakes, neatly and quickly.
Tools and Ingredients
- Medium consistency icing
Place a dollop of icing at the center of the cupcake.
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.
