“We shall have a class party! Everyone bring treats!” my teacher said. “Hooray!” said I. I was excited. I had all these cake mixes, begging to be used. All that frosting. Moreover, I’d just seen a cool decorating hint on realsimple, Use Cookie Cutters to Decorate Cakes! Splendid! Look how nice!
Place cookie cutters on top and fill with sprinkles, powdered sugar, or cocoa powder. (Warning: This technique may convince guests you’ve taken a master class in cake decorating.)
Perfect! I shall fill each cupcake with plum jam and make lovely flowers on top with my cookie cutter, with happy lemon yellow chips for centers! It will be adorably precious! All will be amazed at my skills!
I made one batch. There didn’t seem to be enough. So I made another batch. 36 cupcakes. Each one painstakingly and tediously filled with jam and lovingly frosted. The result?
Sea creatures from the part of the sea that scuba divers do not want to go. The squidgy parts.
