Tuesday Tip of the Day: Literally

22 Oct

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
― Benjamin Franklin
******************
This kind of reminds me of the old, “Give a man a fish” quote. I much rather learn something new than have someone do it for me. I love learning, I love teaching, I love sharing. So, I’m sharing with you.

My friend and baker extraordinaire, Miss Elizabeth, over at Sweet Spot Bakery on the Square, was making these adorable high heeled shoe cupcakes, so I asked her to teach me how to make them and tell me what magical frosting tools she uses.

I love to make cupcakes, brownies and cookies, but if I can learn how to frost these beautiful rose cupcakes, wow, I’d be even more amazing. (Modesty is not my strongest attribute.) So, Miss Elizabeth loaded up a frosting bag and showed me her technique. I was a natural!

Here is the “tip” of the day, literally. The #1M Tip by Wilton for the rose and the large tip coupler to keep it in place. Now, practice, practice, practice. I’ll never be as great as Miss Elizabeth, but she promised to call me next time she has to decorate a zillion rose cupcakes, so I can practice.

If you’re one of those people that rather buy the fish than learn how to fish, then you can go over to Sweet Spot Bakery in McKinney and order some rose cupcakes. Order a whole bunch so I can go over and practice.
