Midnight Mint Chocolate Cupcakes
If you never want to decorate cakes but really want to impress your friends and family, get a 1A tip and a pastry bag. The 1A tip is just a large round hole. And it’s easy to work with. The 1A and the 1M (large star) are pretty much the only tips I use but they make cupcakes look like a professional. I use the disposable bags but wash them out and reuse them till they’re worn out.
Decorate your cupcakes, we used the 1M tip and pretended we worked at Dairy Queen, easy, easy.
We made both full size and mini cupcakes. I know there’s no taste difference, but I really liked these better as minis, probably because 3 wonderful bites, each bite giving a taste of all 3 layers and oh yeah, I could eat 3 and not feel too guilty.
Love mint? How about some of these recipes?
