Nancy, what are some cute simple ideas for cupcake decorating?

Hannah - from los angeles, CA

There are countless easy ways to easily jazz up cupcakes. Topping frosted cupcakes with store-bought pre-made decorations, small candies, or sprinkles are all great ideas. Using more than one frosting color per batch of cupcakes and piping on frosting can also add variety. You may consider using patterned, colorful paper cups to bake the cupcakes in as well, such as using flower petal cups for spring-themed cupcakes.
