Make 'em laugh with a clown cupcake-you can make 'em easy using Color Mist?. Spatula ice a small mound of Ready-To-Use Decorator Icing on top. Using tip 21, figure pipe body, legs, and arms. Spray with Color Mist. Insert a Derby Clown Head and position candy-coated chocolate feet, hands and buttons.
Make the body: Use tip 21 in upright position and the basic icing build-up technique to pipe body. Squeeze hard to build up a generous base, then slowly fill out the body by drawing the tip straight up until you reach the desired height.
Pipe the legs: Insert tip 21 into the front base of the body and draw the icing straight out. You may vary the position of the legs: Draw the legs straight up at the knee and back down again to the foot, or cross the legs back down again to the foot (bend the crossing leg at the knee for a natural look).
Pipe the arms: Insert tip 21 into the body at the shoulder, then squeeze as you draw the tip straight down and then across the body.

I learned how to do this from the Course 1 book. I taught myself before the teacher even showed us how to do it. It takes practice and a steady hand.
I did it differently then the instructions say here. My problem was when I was making the legs, one would be too long. So I figured out that if I made them first then I could hide the end of the legs under the body.
