Confession: I am a terrible cook. Mostly because I dislike cooking. My husband tries to convince me that it is just crafting in the kitchen but I'm not buying it.
However, I do like to bake. Probably because baking leads to such pretty end results AND I have a
raging sweet tooth. I really want to learn how to make pretty cupcakes so I've rounded up some ideas.
I chose these first three for their pretty frosting techniques. I prefer an attractive cupcake to the most delicious one. I'll take a normal tasting cupcake (which is so yummy anyway) with a really cute topping.

The next three have great recipes! I could use some blueberries in my cupcakes and all of these recipes provide that fresh blueberry taste! Plus they are pretty.

Lastly, these DIY toppers are super cute. As I said earlier, the whole point of me making a cupcake is to make it cute. These toppers do just that.

This frosting color guide by Food Network, as seen on Handmade Charlotte, is AMAZING. If I ever needed an excuse to make cupcakes, trying the colors in this chart is just that.
Now I desperately want to make cupcakes. I usually wait for an event but I think I'll make them just because. :)
