For decorating cupcakes:

• 2 Sticks of soft butter
• 4 cups of sifted confectionary sugar
• Keep mixer on low speed
• 2 teaspoons of vanilla
• 1 pinch of salt

Cake Decorating Tools

Here are a few tools you will need to get you started:

1. Piping bag - you will need at least two piping bags. These flexible bags can be used over and over. They are coated to prevent grease from seeping through.

2. Tips - come in many different designs and sizes, get an assortment of them and play around with them and have some fun and see what kind of designs you can come up with.

3. Spatula - this will help pick up the icing, and you'll be able to easily scoop the icing into the piping bag and not make too much of a mess.
With just a few cake decorating tools and a little bit of practice cup cake decorating design ideas and possibilities are endless.
