Friday Fuck-Up: Cupcake Turds


Ya’ll know I am bakingly challenged, but I decided to give it a go this week and help in making cupcakes for a friend’s birthday. I must have been watching too much Food Network lately or something, becauseĀ  I thought I was cool enough to get fancy and try that thing where you pipe the frosting out of a plastic bag.

This is what happened. How the eff do you do this properly?!?

Also, did you guys know that frosting is just butter and sugar?!? OMG that is NOT healthy!

    Your frosting is too stiff, thin it with a bit of water or milk. To get perfect piping all around you have to pick up the cupcake and twirl it slowly as you apply even pressure on your piping bag. As for unhealthy, there are many different recipes for frosting some of which are quite healthy.

    And this is why I don’t bake.

    Remind me to introduce you to your sister-in-law sometime. Frosting is one of her basic food groups.

    piping straight out of a ziplock bag is harder to keep the frosting flow constant. If you thin the frosting like Robbie said and use even a plain round tip on the bag it will be easier to pipe more evenly.
