- 30 to 45 cupcakes, chilled
- Butter cream frosting
- Chocolate dipped strawberries
Frost the cupcakes with your favorite butter cream recipe.
Here are some tips for making your Cupcake Tree:
Cake is easier to handle, and less crumbly when baked a day ahead and refrigerated.
Tint and flavor the frosting for your party theme.
Dip your knife in hot water before frosting for a smoother look.
Decorate the cupcakes with fresh berries.
Using a tiered pastry tree, work from the inside out stacking your cupcakes.
If you don't have a pastry tree you can make one using platters and fabric-covered tin
cans placed in the middle of the platters.
