Cupcake video demo: adding a Ticings cupcake transfer to a cupcake

I'm having trouble transferring videos from my iPhone so there are a few from my Seattle trip that I'll have to work on.

For now, I wanted to share this one, which I couldn't get onto YouTube but could get posted to Flickr. brought a set of edible cupcake transfers to the cupcake meetup at Cupcake in Minneapolis a few weeks ago and we got to see (and taste!) exactly how it works. Here's a little video demo:

There are more photos in my Flickr set but here are a few of the Ticings transfers and the finished product (I chose Twitter because I'm on it all the time - if you don't follow us, see @cupcakeblog):

Here's what one of the sheets looked like:



And they also sell sprinkles and colored sparkly sugar, which they gave to me as well and we used to decorate the cupcake above!


Here's the official definition of the product from their site:

ticings™ are thin sheets of edible icing printed with contemporary designs using food-grade inks. made in the u.s.a., gluten-free, FDA approved and kosher certified, ticings are best applied to fresh buttercream frosting. just peel and press
to give your cakes and frosted desserts modern decorations in minutes!

They have many designs, including Easter bunnies:

Prices vary, but for a combo Easter chicks and bunny designs, it's $15.95 for:

spring forward with our newest designs for easter with six each adorable 2-1/2" ticings for standard or jumbo cupcakes. ships with a free 1/2 oz. packet of easter sprinkle mix (pastel easter quins plus our micro swiss white chocolate), while supplies last.

You can also find Ticings on Twitter (@ticing) and Facebook.

Thanks to Ticings for adding some fun to our meetup; this is definitely the kind of product that you have to get your hands on to truly understand it. It's a cool way to decorate your cupcakes and I think would be fun for kids (with supervision) to feel a part of it. And the sugar around the edges made the cupcake even more delicious.

thanks for posting, rachel!

for best results, apply ticings to a smooth, flat-frosted cupcake. you can gently pat down and smooth to remove the air bubbles, or simply turn upside down on a clean surface to gently press the ticing onto the frosted cupcake.
