Star of David cupcakes for Hanukkah

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

Making this Star of David cupcakes for Hanukkah is as simple as tinting icing blue and piping 2 triangles.
Hanukkah cupcakes
What You Need: 1 cupcake (baked and cooled); icing tinted light blue; white icing (works a little better if you add some piping gel, but this is not essential); pastry bag (any type); round tip 1, 2 or 3. You could also just buy a tube of white writing icing or gel.
How to Make It: Frost cupcake blue. Let set for a few minutes. Use tip to “draw” one triangle and then draw another in the opposite position. (Hint: Icing pipes better if you “anchor” each line by lightly touching it to the surface. Then squeeze as you hold tip slightly above the surface and move in the direction you want, touching down again when you reach another turning point.)
