Step 2: Pick and choose

Choose two to three cupcake liners and turn them inside out so the colour or pattern is on the inside. Stack the liners together, with the smallest in the centre.

Step 3: Pipe cleaners

Push the pipe cleaner through the centre of all of the liners. (If they’re too thick, you can use a push-pin or straight pin to poke the hole first.) Pull the pipe cleaner so about 2 cm poke through the middle of the liners.
