Final Thoughts About These Cupcake Decorating Ideas

Coming up with unique cupcake decorating ideas is not hard even if you don’t want to work with fondant or a lot of different Wilton Decorating Tips.

Think of the foods you enjoy and how they can be altered to work on a cupcake.

For example, even candy bars can be broken and used a decorations although I do suggest not using ones that have fillings inside of them.

Hard candy, M&M’s, peanut brittle or even lollipops can be used.

Let your imagination run wild!
