How to Pipe a Cupcake Swirl
The classic cupcake swirl combined with some colourful sprinkles creates a delicious looking treat for any occasion.
You Will Need:
Hold your prepared piping bag vertically about 1cm above the surface of your cupcake.
Squeeze the bag to begin the middle of the swirl. Without releasing any pressure, raise the decorating tip slightly and begin moving it slightly to the side. This will start off your swirl.
Keeping the same pressure, start to move around the star you have created in the centre. Keep going until it connects to the starting point.
After you have completed this first circle, with the same pressure, move the decorating tip slightly inwards and create another slightly smaller circle. Continue spiraling upwards until you reach your desired height. Once you have reached the center of your cupcake, stop squeezing and pull the tip upwards.
