Wilton goes back to the 3rd grade

Since my son’s birthday is in July, he misses out on celebrating it at school. The teachers usually let them pick any day they want during the year to be there “school birthday”. This yea Royal decided he wanted it to be on the last day of school. As if this time of year is not crazy enough lol

I decided to just do cupcakes. It was the least mess and hassle for the teacher and I of course am a considerate mom ;) The only thing about this is I hate to frost them and I am still in the learning stages with pastry bag. I took a few classes for it this year so while  I am not horrible at it, there is still plenty of room for improvement.

I didn’t want to do anything to time consuming but I also wanted them to be cute. I had a bunch or Wilton Cupcake Wraps left over from a previous project so I figured I would just use those up. I also knew that I wanted to fill the cupcakes just for a little fun. I had never filled a cupcake before so I was a little nervous but it turned out being very simple.

  1. First I prepared one box of Duncan Hines Swiss Chocolate Cake Mix and one box of Duncan Hines French Vanilla Cake Mix because he wanted chocolate and vanilla cupcakes.
  2. After baking and cooling, I filled my pastry bag with icing. Using a No. 230 round Decorating Tip I filled the cupcakes. It was VERY easy. Just stick the tip in the center of the cupcake about 3/4 of the way down. Gently squeeze the bag as you pull the tip up.
  3. For my first time, I thought I did a pretty good job filling them.
  4. I used a Pastry bag to put the icing on. I wasn’t sure which tip would be a good choice. I bought the Wilton 12 Piece Cupcake Decorating Set. It is a great starter kit for under $10. I used the Round tip 12 for the white icing which was a little smaller than I would have liked  I used the 1M Star tip for the chocolate. This was a good size but uses a lot of icing.

To decorate the cupcakes I used the following Wilton Products:

  1. Celebration Cupcake Wraps ‘n Pix
  2. Celebration Royal Icing Decorations
  3. Wheels Cupcake Wraps ‘n Pix
  4. Wheels Royal Icing Decorations
  5. Sweet Dots Cupcake Wraps ‘n Pix
