I did stop by Michael''s and purchase a few things however. I bought disposable cake decorating bags, the larger tips for cupcakes, a larger connector for the tip and some cupcake liners that I've always wanted to try. I did bake the cupcakes in traditional cupcake liners, but then transferred them to the fancy ones when I decorated them.
These aren't anything special, but I'm practicing the frosting part. I'll get it right soon I hope (at least before I gain a few pounds!)
