simple swirl cupcake

this is a simple and pretty quick way to ice cupcakes…you will need a pastry bag and an extra large star tip…

don’t forget to also get the extra large coupler!  i made that mistake and had to go back to store…

ok so I am trying to make my cupcakes a litttle yummier and a little prettier… i love the magnolia cupcake recipe and i probably should not mess with it, but i do smoetimes feel like it could be a little bit dry, so today I added 3 tablespoons of sour cream to the recipe and I think the result is kind of nice…hard to say  because instead of using self rising flour (what the recipe calls for) i used cake flour and just added 1 tablespoon of baking soda,,,they puffed up a bit more than usual… which was really not a bad thing…i always felt that the magnolia recipe left my cupcakes kind of flat on top…  so here are some samples…i made the cake batter pink for valentines day, not sure i love it…my husband is insisting that it is not pink that it is orange..i think it is sort of a pinkish coral salom-ey color–i quite liked it…jury is out on that one…
