Kim I am proud to say we finally managed to get the video done while Pete was home for a few days last week. 🙂
No points to me though as Pete did all the work – the video, editing, music (all though I did chose the song) oh and iced the cupcakes.
I very excitedly started this post to upload the video but alas I have to purchase a video upgrade so Pete suggested I upload it to YouTube instead and place the link in this post. I have such a clever husband.
Click here to watch the video on how to ice (frost) cupcakes.
Amazing, I hope I can do that icing work
It is so easy Raymund. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
Miss A watched this with me tonight and she thought it was a professional commercial. She loved it! And we were both super impressed Mandy. Beautifully done and you make it look so easy. 🙂
Oh Kristy, you and Miss A are far too complimentary. Thank you! It really is easy, promise. Have a super Spring break. 🙂 xo
Awesome video and dainty cupcakes just perfect for a spring gathering
Thanks so very much Bam. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
IM SO THERE 😀

Awesome! Have a super day CCU. 🙂 xo
Great to see all the kitchen action on the video! I love your piping equipment – I must upgrade mine! Beautiful work, Mandy xx
Thanks very much Charlie! Pete made my icing stand for me. I love it. Have an awesome day. 🙂 xo
Well done! loved the music 🙂
I couldn’t get the song out of my head the whole day. It’s a lovely old song. Have a super day Sue. 🙂 xo
Very professional! The cupcakes look gorgeous 🙂
Thanks very much Giovanna. Have a lovely day. 🙂 xo
amazing! Can you do my icing work for me:) I am just horrible at it no matter what:)
Wouldn’t that be fun. Although I doubt you are horrible at it. Thank you for your kind compliment Belle. Have a super day. 🙂 xo
Hi Mandy, Cool video … and lovely looking cupcakes.
Hi Glenda, thanks very much! Have an awesome day. 🙂 xo
Brilliant you clever lady! Now I want to lick the icing off the cupcakes and I’m singing the song 🙂
I shall not divulge how much icing I consumed… It is such a happy ditty. Have a lovely day Tanya. 🙂 xo
Great video! And even better frosting expertise. I think you have a steadier hand than I do but now I think I have to go out & buy those tools. I can remember my mother singing that song to me.
I’ve been having nothing but problems with editing videos ever since I got Windows 8.
Thanks Diane! You are way more advanced than I am. Pete did all the video editing. I wouldn’t know where to start! Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
Wonderful work, Mandy and thank you for sharing!
Thanks very much Anige! Have a lovely day. 🙂 xo
Mandy, LOVED it! How precise and skilled you are with that piping bag!
Celia, you are too kind, thank you! Have a beautiful day. 🙂 xo
Mandy & Pete, I SO much enjoyed watching this & the SONG is Fabulous!
How utterly apt and beautiful.
Luv U from Minnesota! XXXXXXXXX
So happy you enjoyed the video Kim. Wis I could have enjoyed one of the cupcakes with you! Have a beautiful day and love to you from a sunny Sundays River. xoxoxo
Thanks Tandy. Have a lovely day. 🙂 xo
Well aint you a clever little lady! 🙂 Feel free to swing round to ice my cakes any time Miss Mandy. PS: Not sure if my Gen Y brain has kicked in, but that last statement was not at all supposed to sound dirty. LOL! Gorgeous looking cupcakes.
Anna, I would be over in a heartbeat to ice your cakes. 🙂 Have an awesome day. 🙂 xo
This was a wonderful video and, for someone like myself, a great tutorial. I don’t know when I’ll find myself frosting cupcakes — or anything, for that matter — but I’ll come back to your video when I do.
By the way, I’d no idea that you sang, too. 😀
*Clears throat to sing to John* – maybe I can ice a few for you when I visit. Have an awesome day! 🙂 xo
Brilliant! Loved the song too – can you here me singing along? I’ve never ventured into decorating cakes, but have bought myself some nozzle thingies and a bag, now I don’t have any more excuses thanks to your film 🙂
I also can’t stop singing the song Claire. Just a catchy number. Icing is really easy once you have done it a couple of times. Have a super weekend. 🙂 xo
You and Pete make a great team…nice job. There is only one problem, I’m going to be humming that song all day. 😀
Thanks Karen. My mom and I always launch into singing this song. Have a super weekend. 🙂 xo
Great video Mandy. You can embed the video link so it appears in the post – just upload in media. Maybe you knew that already.
Thanks Sally. I was trying to upload the link but couldn’t get it right. I will try again. Have a super week ahead. 🙂 xo
my mom and my sisters never allowed me on frosting actually because it’s gonna be a messy job!
Thanks Dedy! I bet you would do a brilliant job at frosting. Have a wonderful week ahead. 🙂 xo
Cool vid! Expert icing, made me want to eat cupcakes.
Aww, thanks friendy. Miss you. 🙂 xo
I hate that I cannot access Youtube in Turkey. Do you have a post with instructions?
I Jane, welcome and thanks for stopping by. I am so sorry to say I don’t have a post with instructions. I shall have to rectify that soon. There is no real art to how I ice. If I am going to do a swirl, I start on the outside of the cupcake and work my way to the centre usually finishing with a raised centre and if I am doing the “dots”, I place one in the middle, then two to each of the sides, then turn the cupcake and do the same on the sides to form an X and then fill in the open spaces usually with 3 more dots. I do hope this helps until I can do a post. Have a super weekend 🙂 Mandy xo
