Recipes – Great for Beginners

Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

If you’re new to cake decorating the first place to start is with a great cake recipe. Here is my vanilla cupcake recipe (you will also find a vanilla cake recipe too!). This makes a really light fluffy sponge cake which you can then decorate exactly how you want! Plus the best thing about this recipe is that if you fancy a different flavour you only need to change the flavour of the liquid flavouring.

Vanilla Buttercream Recipe

Once you’ve created the perfect cupcakes you need a great buttercream recipe. Here is my vanilla American buttercream. The tutorial is filled with lots of tips and tricks for making it the perfect consistency for piping or using to cover your cakes.

Cupcake Piping Techniques

Piping the perfect buttercream swirl or adding piped detail on to the side of your cakes can be so satisfying. There are so many tutorials on the channel going through how to pipe swirls, what piping nozzles create which effects, plus how to pipe pretty buttercream flowers. Below I have put a few of my favourites, including my very first piping techniques tutorial that now has over 7 million views, so make sure you check it out!

Plus you can find more of my piping techniques tutorials in my piping techniques playlist.

The 1m vs 2D Piping Nozzle

Now I mentioned how the piping techniques tutorials can help you know which piping nozzle to use, but one of the biggest questions I see online is should I use the 1M or the 2D piping nozzle? these are 2 of the most popular piping tips to use so in this tutorial I compare the 2.

Two Tone Buttercream Rose Cupcake Tutorial

If you’ve mastered the buttercream swirl what about advancing to some simple flower cupcakes. This 2 tone rose cupcake just looks so pretty!


On the channel there are so many tutorials showing different cake techniques whether you’re looking to add a simple marbled fondant wrap to your birthday cake or maybe you want your wedding cake to shine. Below are just a small selection of what you can find on the channel!
