In case you missed it before, I'm bringing home my lace stenciled cupcakes tutorial. Originally posted here at Snips and Spice.
Sometimes I just want the cake part of a cupcake, not all the intensely sweet frosting. I love cream cheese frosting but I think that buttercream and royal icing is just too much! When I have store bought cupcakes at a party or function, I usually use the wrapper to conveniently wipe off all but some of the icing. If you're like me then maybe you'll enjoy this elegant alternative.
I purchased an 1/8 of yard of lace at Hobby Lobby and cut the strip into 12 squares.
(If you want to make 24 cupcakes purchase 1/4 yard of lace)
It couldn't be more simple. Place a square of lace over the cupcake and generously sift Powdered sugar over the top.
(Be sure to use a new square of lace for each cupcake)
Carefully remove the lace,
and voila! A beautifully stenciled cupcake.
Lovely, aren't they?
*Note- cupcakes should be dusted just before serving (: *
