Birthday parties

Cupcake decorating ideas: Train

We’ve whipped up a month’s worth of decorating ideas for our 30th birthday, because we think every day calls for adorable desserts!

By Today's Parent

Cover cupcake with white glaze icing. Lay black licorice lace “tracks.” Fit a piping bag with a small grass tip, fill with green icing and pipe grass on outside of tracks. Cut a vanilla wafer cookie to be 2-in. long. Place a chocolate wafer roll on top, using a dab of icing to secure. Cut another wafer cookie into a 1-in. square and stack on top of wafer roll. Stick a yellow mini M&M to the front of wafer roll. Place train on tracks and add round black licorice gummies for wheels. Cut a chocolate-covered biscuit stick to be ¾-in. long, top with a small licorice gummy and attach to top of wafer roll.
