Cupcakes are a great way to showcase your creative abilities since you can try out multiple decorating ideas all on one batch of cupcakes. But maybe you’re feeling limited if dyeing frosting or sprinkles are your usual go-to move when it comes to decorating cupcakes. So, if you’re looking to break out of your cupcake decorating rut and want to try some creative embellishment ideas after whipping up a batch of cupcakes in your Bosch mixer, then we have you covered.
Use Unique Sprinkles Like Edible Pearls
That’s right, you can add pearls to your cupcakes for an instant decor boost, taking a simple frosted cupcake and transforming it into a delicate treat. Even better, edible pearls come in a wide array of colors ranging from natural pearl colors to whimsical colors like electric blue, fuschia, lime green, and many more. You can also choose from a variety of sizes to suit your creative heart.
Find Your Creativity With Fondant
Fondant is an excellent way to create edible elements for your cupcakes. You can color fondant much like frosting, allowing you to shape it to suit your needs. But until frosting, fondant is firm and able to hold its shape under gravity’s pull. Sort of like an edible modeling clay but much tastier.
If you aren’t a fan of the taste of store-bought fondant, you can quickly and easily whip up your own marshmallow fondant in your Bosch mixer!
Make Your Own Chocolate Decorations
A fun and easy way to bring a personalize and creative touch to your cupcakes is to create your own chocolate decorations to top your cupcakes.
All you need to do is melt the chocolate of your choice, fill a cake decorating bag and pipe your decorations onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Pop the pan into your freezer for about 45 minutes to an hour, depending on how thickly you piped your chocolate decorations.
Candy Can Add A Fun Flourish To Your Cupcakes
Candy can be a simple shortcut to creating fun cupcakes. The quick placement of a couple of candy robins eggs and you have a great cupcake ready for an Easter celebration. Or you can experiment with color by using Skittles or M&Ms to create patterns and designs on your cupcakes.
Never Forget About Fruit and Whipped Cream
This is the perfect solution for those trying to skimp on unnecessary sugar. Whipped cream is light and fluffy and provides a flavor boost of its own – sans all the confectioner’s sugar. Then you can add colorful fruit varieties to the top for more embellishment and tangy flavor.
Crumble An Extra Cupcake
A super easy way to decorate your cupcakes is by sprinkling them with cupcake crumbles. This is an especially good option for colored cupcakes like strawberry, chocolate, and red velvet cupcakes.
Toasted Marshmellow Cream Topping
This idea comes from the Cake Boss. They made a whipped topping out of marshmellow then torched the tops for beautiful color and texture.
Whatever you choose to do with your cupcakes, your Bosch mixer will be there to back you up and whip up all the cupcakes you will ever need.
