Bad news - I’m devoting much too much time to my new blog.  Good news - I got to play with my kitchen torch today!

PS - check out how you can get two completely different looks using the exact same piping tip and the same amount of frosting.

These look wonderful, Patricia! I love the two-tone effect you got with using your kitchen torch. It gives it a really nice look to them. Please send a sample my way so I can confirm their taste is as good as their appearance.  Thanks for sharing your pictures. These were very nicely done.

omg those look awesome!!! I liked the first set of cupcakes with the point at the top, they really look like they are wanting to be eaten (by me).
How did you come up with that recipe? do they taste like smores?

Thanks guys… the pointy ones are my favorite too.  I found the recipe on the web.  You can get it if you click on the link to my blog - lots of pictures for you to see as well.  Oh and yes, they taste like a room temp. s’more…. definitely for those who like sweet frosting.

Patrincia, those are so lovely!  Is the difference between them, piping-wise, that for the flatter rosette, you keep the tip low (next to the cupcake surface), while for the peaked design you let the frosting fall onto the cupcake from a higher point (or maybe start low and build higher?).  And were these done with a 1M?  Somehow, when I use a 1M, I always feel like its a little too small.

Thanks for sharing, I loved seeing these!

I got that torch as a Christmas gift, but I think the hardware store variety is even cheaper and works just as well.  Or you could always brown your meringue the old fashioned way - under the broiler.  Watch it carefully… it happens very fast!

Great looking cupcakes Patricia! The ones with the peaks are my favourite too. I’ll take either one though for a taste test.  wink

HI Patrincia,  As I said I drop in to read your blog regularly but can’t leave a comment, I’ve tried twice but when I press to send my comment a signal comes up for me to click on but nothing happens!  It is the little arrow pointing up and down where usually a list is forthcoming for the writer to choose from, but it stays blank.  I hope you understand me, I’m not into computer speak, I’m sure there’s an easier way to explain this!  Anyway I enjoy your blog and I love your photography, very nice! wink
