It’s Cupcake Time!

We love to eat cupcakes in our home!  With birthdays around the corner and Valentine’s Day a few weeks away, I am already starting to plan my cupcake themes.  Thanks to Betty Crocker, over the holidays I had the opportunity to review their Decorating Cupcake Icing.  It’s easy and fun to use and the end result will be festive and beautifully decorated cupcakes that are more affordable than having the bakery do it!

The Betty Crocker Decorating Cupcake Icings are available in Petal Pink, Sky Blue, Sunset Orange, Cloud White, Meadow Green, and Buttercup Yellow.  Each icing has a velvety smooth, fluffy texture and yummy vanilla buttercream flavor.  Over the holidays, Ivy Green and Rose Red were available at Wal-Mart for a limited amount of time.

You can find Betty Crocker Decorating Cupcake Icing in your local grocery store.  Each 8.4-ounce can comes with four decorative tips, including drawing, ribbon, leaf, and star and retails for $3.99.  The decorating tips make it super easy to write names or create shapes and basket weave designs.

 “There’s no better way to celebrate the season than with decorating,” said Mindy Beegle, senior brand manager of Betty Crocker Decorating at Signature Brands. “Betty Crocker Decorating Cupcake Icing lets everyone feel like a professional baker by adding a splash of color and personal touch to cupcakes in minutes.  Decorate cupcakes for your next holiday party, or package them as gifts to family and friends.”

    What a great idea, looks like it would take cupcakes to the next level without a lot of work.

  2. I love this frosting, I’m not really good with the writing tip, but I LOVE the star and ribbon tips. It makes frosting cupcakes AND cookies so easy. Plus it tastes good.
