I like to decorate cupcakes with simple piped chocolate decorations, but I have no artistic talent. I use templates and place them under wax paper....then trace them with melted chocolate. I think that Wilton's candy melts are the easiest way to pipe decorations. They stay firm at room temperature and store well for long periods of time.
I made these cupcakes for an anniversary party. I used red candy melts for the petals and light cocoa candy melts for the centers. The flower template can be resized for mini cupcakes!
