Baby rattles, flowers, and bears—oh my! Head into the kitchen with cake designer Rachael Teufel for another adorable cupcake display perfect for any baby shower.
First up is a two-tone rattle. Rachael demonstrates one of her favorite powdered-sugar methods to create a beautifully smooth, fondant-like top, but this time she uses two different colors of American-style buttercream. Then she creates an edible handle with a modeling-chocolate bow and finishes it off with a flawless line of sprinkles.
Next is a floral arrangement that could be modified to celebrate anything from a birthday to a bridal shower. Rachael shares a few tips on piping perfect rosettes and stars and repurposing sprinkles from other holidays.
For the third cupcake, Rachael creates an adorable mini teddy bear. To mimic the bear’s short fur, Rachael uses a grass tip in a non-traditional way. She also shares her time-saving trick for changing tips without the use of a coupler.
As always, Rachael gives you lots of ideas to customize each of these designs to create cupcakes that are sure to be the hit of your next party! For more helpful piping tips, check out Rachael’s premium video on Piping Basic Borders.
