First, you’re going to want to make your cupcakes from your own favorite recipe or any store-bought mix. Let cool completely.

Then you’re going to place blue buttercream icing in a piping bag fitted with a 2A icing tip. Pipe icing in a layer on cupcakes in a spiral motion from the center to the outside of the cupcake.
