Heart sprinkles | Star piping tip

Roses are a Valentine’s Day staple, so these cupcake’s are the perfect way to celebrate a day of love! Using a star piping tip, tightly swirl your buttercream starting from the inside, working your way to the outer edge. Once completed, top with some heart sprinkles, and you are golden! 

Sprinkles on sprinkles

This is one of my all-time favorite cupcake decorating techniques! To start, you will make a single swirl covering the entire surface of the cupcake, almost to the edge, but not spilling over. You will then roll that in Valentine’s Day nonpareil sprinkles, and top that with another swirl of buttercream using a star piping tip, and finish it off with heart sprinkles! The layers and variation that this style has adds so much depth and interest!
