Usually I create my own recipe when making cakes and other sweets, but my sole purpose was to work on my decorating/ piping skills. The cupcakes ended up being super yummy and moist (little secret: I tend to add a bit more butter than the recipe calls)
This is the recipe for the chocolate cake can be found here. The vanilla frosting was one I made a few weeks ago for my friend's Ninja Cake. Tip: if you make too much frosting, just grab a container and throw it in the freezer. Before using it, let it defrost over night and you might have to add a bit more powder sugar in case the frosting absorbed some on the moisture in the freezer.
This flower piping tutorial was one I found on Pinterest. I didn't really follow her instructions because I'm still trying to get the knack of this and then I topped them off with pearl sprinkles from Jo-ann's.
I had soo much mini cupcakes left I played with the other piping tips. <3
