Prepare 500 grams of FunCakes Mix for Cupcakes as indicated on the package. Place the baking cups in the muffin pan and divide the batter into the baking cups to half fill the cups. Bake the cakes for 18-20 minutes until golden yellow and take them out of the muffin pan. Let them cool down completely on the kitchen counter.
Prepare 150 grams of FunCakes Mix for Enchanted Cream® as described on the package and place the tips in the decorating bags and fill them with the cream.
Make with tip #1M a rosette by smoothly rotating the tip from the center of the cupcake. Make sure you don’t put too much pressure on the decorating bag. To make swirls with tip #22, you need to put a little pressure on the bag before piping the swirls. With tip #4B you need to make a short move from the top to the bottom in the size of a button to make the desired swirl. With tip #104 you slowly squeeze in the decorating bag while making a zigzag move. Make sure the thick side of the tip is at the bottom. Decorate the different swirls on the cupcakes with the golden decorations.
Tip! For a touch of gold you can spray with the metallic spray a golden layer on the Enchanted Cream®!
