This week I decided to make the caramel vanilla bourbon cupcakes again. I also decided to use the same buttercream recipe I have been using the past few weeks. I once again used all 12 cupcakes and did not get to freeze any. I am okay with this, as I have so many other flavours I want to try to make. The problem with this is that I end up with so many cupcakes however, good thing I have friends that are willing to help eat them! All week I was not really sure how I wanted to decorate my cupcakes since I have gone away from my original cupcake themes for each week. My mom was helping me look on Pintrest and she found shoe cupcakes. Being that I love shoes I thought this would be fun! When using pinterest in the past I would look at the first picture and never go into the actual website or blog. This has since changed, as I have started to dig deeper into the pictures I have found on pinterest and see where they are coming from and if there is more information that can help me. I found this to be very helpful when making my shoe cupcakes as there was actually a video on how to make the shoes. Without using the site and watching her video, I would not have really known where to start in making these shoe cupcakes. In order to make them I have to get a cookie to use for the sole of the shoe and then a cone for the heel. I ended up cutting the top of the cone and making it on an angle so it would attach easily. I started by piping the cupcakes and then attaching the cone to the cookie and carefully placing it to the cupcake. I needed to add more icing to help keep the heel standing. Overall they were not too hard to do. I am happy with how they turned out but wish they would have looked a little neater. I am thinking that I used the wrong piping tools for this, I should have used the same tool as in the picture but I wanted to change it a bit. The tool I used worked okay but it did not allow for enough icing to go on the cupcake. I needed a thick amount of icing to keep the heel attached. If I was to try this again, I will definitely be using a different tool to help make them look neater.
