How to Make First Birthday Cupcakes

Learn how to make first birthday cupcakes from the experts at Butter Lane Bakery in this Howcast food video.

Okay, so we’re going to make cupcakes for a kids first birthday party. So what I’m going to do is I’m actually going to use banana cupcake which is very child-friendly. And I have some regular American chocolate buttercream in pastry bag, I filled it about halfway so I can get a nice grip on the bag and I actually have control over the bag. And what I’m going to do is I’m going to put a nice generous amount of the frosting on here. What I’m doing is I’m squeezing and a little pressure not too high and I’m just going to add a little bit but not too much frosting on the cupcakes. Not to the point where you really can’t eat it and all you’re going to taste is the buttercream. So I add that on there and I add a nice simple little topping for kids. Kids love sprinkles, they love colors. So we have some rainbow nonpareils that I’m just going to go ahead and drizzle some on top. I’m going to put them in my hand, that way I can determine how much and where they’re going to go on the cupcake. And then I’m just going to give it a nice little sprinkle, once I have it on there you’re all set. Very simple, easy, and beautiful.
