Making picture-perfect swirl-topped cupcakes might seem like something you should leave to the pros. But F&W Test Kitchen frosting maestro Justin Chapple has an easy shortcut. All you need is two colors of frosting, plastic wrap and a pastry bag—no artistic skills needed. Watch this week’s episode of Mad Genius Tips to learn how to make the most beautiful cupcakes ever.
For @galadrieljones, I think you were hoping for a bit more formal still? I’m going to do it again but this time with his formal coat still on I think. Slightly different set-up maybe. I just in my head was thinking end of the night, everyone has left the party, so he can take off the stuffy coat, unbutton, untuck, and roll up the sleeves. Maybe in preparation for… other activities ;)
Also thank you for the lovely compliment you sent along with the request. I’m flattered you think I draw him well <3
Unseasonably cold Wintersend! Twigs and Josie celebrate with a chocolate festival, just like my wife and I do: Each partner buys a fancy bottle of dessert wine, and three kinds of chocolate that neither has tried before. The drawback is that when one is being adventurous in buying chocolate, not every offering is going to be a winner.
We’re getting close to the end on these, folks! (Then I can start doing my terrible sketches that have been sitting in my brain for too long.) I was craving cheesecake pretty bad throughout most of this. *~*
