  1. Have the cupcakes baked and cooled and the frosting prepared. It should be super smooth and ready to use.
  2. To duplicate what we did, pipe some of the cupcakes with a swirl of vanilla frosting and add sugar decors on top while frosting is freshly applied, so that they will adhere.
  3. To make the raspberry frosting, add a small handful of fresh raspberries to the vanilla frosting and beat very well until incorporated and smooth. The frosting is very high in fat and the berries contain a lot of water, so getting them to combine will take some doing and the amount of berries that you can add is not endless. For every cup of frosting you can add about 3 berries. You are just going for color and texture so pay attention to the texture of the frosting as you beat it and start by adding just a few berries. I have obviously opted to leave the seeds in, which I like.
  4. Pipe raspberry frosting as described above.
  5. Frosted cupcakes are ready to serve or store in a single layer in an airtight container at room temperature and are best served within 24 hours.
