When icing cupcakes I normally just pile it on with a palatte knife, but for these birthday cupcakes for a family friend I decided to have a proper go at piping. There are so many different kinds of piping bags and having previously used the disposable ones, on a brief encounter with piping (it was okish), this time I decided to test out a silicone bag which was supposed to be really good. I can tell you that it wasn’t. The icing squeezed out around the nozzle, which eventually popped out. Despite the bag issues they turned out pretty cute, with pink spotty cases and topped with mini chocolate cupcakes.
