How to frost cupcakes

How to frost cupcakes

Emily from A Mummy Too is also my neighbour, so she popped over to show me how to frost cupcakes and to make some how to frost cupcakes videos for her blog. Emily is a real natural on camera and I think you will agree, working together makes Emily’s amazing baking really come to life. I learnt how to frost cupcakes with and without a piping bag and we had a real giggle.

A Mummy Too Emily’s how to frost cupcakes post and recipe.

I’m really honoured to be a finalist for the third year running in the Britmums Brilliance in Blogging Video Award, thanks so much for all the votes! I’m loving making video more than ever,  collaborating is so much fun and you learn so much working with someone else.

    I love it… I want to come to yours for tea!! (I don’t actually like frosting – shhhh- but they are way too pretty not to want to eat). Love Max so much, he’s a natural too!
