In the end, it was an exhausting affair.
Well, KokoD loved it and has placed an advanced order for his birthday. Thank goodness it is 4 months away. That gives me time to recuperate. Hahahah. To all professional cupcake decorators, I take my hats off to you.
By the way, I used Bake With Yan's ready muffin mix - blueberry and chocolate.
For the icing, I used the following recipe:
Thick Vanilla Frosting
- 1 cup shortening
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 3 cups powdered sugar (sifted)
- 3 tablespoons milk
Beat together shortening and vanilla with an electric mixer.
As you are beating, alternately add in powdered sugar and milk.
