Cupcakes :)

So yesterday I had my very first go at making cupcakes, with the help of my friend! Making the actual cakes was easy, the tricky part was the icing! We had to make it thick enough so that we could pipe it onto the cupcakes and it would stay in shape! We had several goes at this and it just wouldn't hold, it was actually gross looking! So we had to go back to the shop to get more icing sugar as we used a whole bag trying to thicken it up! Once I got it to the right consistency, I added a small amount of Vanilla and a drop of blue food colouring to turn the mixture a mint green colour. When it was perfect, I started to pipe it onto the cakes- then the piping bag tore open! Nightmare lol! So I panicked- then realised I could use a food bag attached to the nozzle instead!
Turned out pretty well considering everything that went wrong! Once the icing was on, I decorated with little silver metallic balls!
