How to frost cupcakes: a video tutorial

Several people have asked us recently, about bakeries like Magnolia and Billy's: how do they get their frosting to look like that?

Well, here's a video of Magnolia's Bobbie Lloyd icing some red velvet cupcakes. Via Our Kitchen Table, which also has other cupcake-making videos and a recipe. They got this video from Epicurious, which has a lot of cupcake recipes, including ones from the inspiration for this blog, Clare Crespo's Hey There, Cupcake! Clare now runs "roving bakery" Treat Street in L.A., as well as t-shirt company Yay Me!

THANK YOU for posting this! Of course I am now going to neurotically frost dozens of cupcakes like this to perfect the technique...
