Simple Yet Sophisticated - Cupcake Ideas for Classy Occasions
Nevermore, my dear friends!
Cool Cupcake Decorating Idea #1
Ahh, the Simple Simon. Chocolate on chocolate on chocolate. How could you go wrong?
When I'm making these mini curls, I just use a vegetable peeler down the long edge of a room-temperature block of chocolate. It's best to actually grate it over your cakes so the curls don't break with double-handling.
You can also try spiking your frosting with a dash of Baileys. ;)
For full effect, try to find dark brown patty papers.
You can find this recipe here.
Swanky Cupcake Decorating Idea #2
HONEY, MARSCAPONE & FIG
Ooooh, so fancy! And super easy. Just torch a few figs, plonk them on top and you're basically the next Maggie Beer.

Wonderfully Easy Cupcake Decorating Idea #3
APPLE BUTTER CARAMEL
I am a S.U.C.K.E.R. for cream cheese frosting! Pair it with apple and caramel and you have yourself a world-class tastebud party.
Another plonk-and-you're-done decorating effort with maximum impact.
Tip - The darker papers balance well with this one, too.
Deliciously Simple Cupcake Decorating Idea #4
Again with the cream cheese and the plonking! Onto a winner here!
Also, fruit. These cupcakes are basically diet food*.
*Don't believe everything you read on the internet.
Minimalistic Cupcake Decorating Idea #5
Upping the effort level just a little, these minty morsels are still simplistic in their design.
When piping chocolate onto baking paper, I ditch my piping bag for a simple plastic freezer bag. That way, the warmth of your hands help to keep the chocolate flowing. Remember to temper your chocolate creations at room temperature so they get a gloss to them (no matter how tempting it is to just chuck the tray in the fridge for 5 minutes).
Dark cases are a must for these.

Warming Winter Cupcake Decorating Idea #6
I would probably end up eating most of this mixture before it made it in the oven but how simple and delicious would these be to take to a supper gathering?

Maximum Impact Cupcake Decorating Idea #7
The colours of these ones pop so well!
*Cue all the 'popping cherry' puns.*
Again with the dark cases.

COOKIES AND CREAM
Try not to eat all the cookies (bikkies) before you frost these.
I dare you.

Easy But Effective Cupcake Decorating Ideas #9
LEMON & BLUEBERRY
Now THAT'S what I call a mountain of frosting.
The sprinkling of lemon zest just sets it off.
Anddd, I saved my favourites for last.
