I added a white coloring to the frosting to give it a really bright white look. I learned about using white tint after reading a "10 Keys to Cookie Decorating Success" post over at Sweetopia. In the post she writes about tinting royal icing with white and the subtle difference it makes. I was using frosting and not royal icing, but I thought I would give it a whirl anyways....and my goodness what a difference!!!!
The delicious swirl on top was created using a 1M tip. The end result made them appear as though they had Carvel vanilla soft serve ice-cream on the top of each one.....have I mentioned how much I love that as well.
The cupcake was absolutely delicious and well worth the side track, but after each morsel was devoured and every finger licked clean, I made a quick decision to jump back onto the no-sugar wagon. I think I'll be able to stay there as long as I don't make these again anytime soon!
