How to Get a Cupcake Swirl

To get the pretty frosting swirl on top of the cupcake you want to use a piping bag and a star tip. Once you have filled the piping bag with frosting, start on the outside edge of the cupcakes and squeeze. Move the tip slowly, from the outside inward and upward to create the swirl.

How Long Do Unicorn Cupcakes Last

When cupcakes are stored properly the cupcakes will last up to 5 or 6 days. Since these cupcakes are made at home, without the preservatives, they tend to get stale by day 5.
