Lace Stenciled Cupcakes

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 (: *

  4. This is such a sweet idea! Wish I'd seen this for my wedding! We did a small red velvet cake for cutting and then cupcakes for guests instead of sheetcakes. Cute!

  8. These look so pretty. I've done the same thing with paper doilies before. I completely agree about wanting to ditch the frosting.

  13. Aloha All: I was wondering if you could use matcha tea instead of the powdered sugar? of course you could use cacao. I also ground up food grade rose petals and could use that. Any other suggestions on powder other that powdered sugar?
