For these cupcakes, I decided to spread buttercream icing on flat instead of piping it on, and then decorate with a little icing bow. The colors seem a little misrepresented in the photo, but the main icing was mint green, and the bows were a darker teal. I didn't mean to put these cupcakes in such dramatic lighting... but they handle the spotlight well. ;-)
Oh, cupcakes are just so much fun.
