Flat icing cupcakes is a really useful skill if you want to be able to mater perfect piping of swirls. It is much easier to pipe on to a flat surface. It is also easier for sugar paste/fondant domes if you originally start with a flat surface. Watch this video to learn how I do this (a clue: if you know how to fly aeroplanes, this will make complete sense to you).
You will need a flat palette knife. If you have a big and a small one then bigger one is easier to work with.
You will need to bake some flat topped cupcakes first. The free recipe for these is here.

I have taught 1000s of people in face to face classes how to flat ice cupcakes and I learnt fairly early on that people understand how to do it better when I teach it using my unique method.
Sounds crazy right? But it totally works. If you follow this method, you will be icing 100s of cupcakes in no time at all with no mistakes and no wastage 🙂
