I posted a tutorial on how to make Red Marble Cupcakes a few weeks ago.

You can watch the video below.

Today I want to share 3 simple ways you can decorate your red marble cupcakes (or any other) using a star tip/nozzle.

Try it out and share your results ^_^3-easy-ways-to-decorate-red-marble-cupcakes-cover-pic-baking-with-amari


1 Cup (250ml) Non-dairy cream frosting (Puratos – Whippak) – chilled

1 – 2 drops of pink or red gel color


  • In a large bowl; pour the chilled cream frosting and add the color into the liquid.
  • Using an electric mixer or whisk; whip the frosting until soft peaks form (2 – 4 minutes).
  • Your frosting is ready to use. Spoon the frosting into a piping bag.

What you’ll require to decorate:

(1) Disposable piping bag (You can also use any nylon or silicon piping/icing bag)

(2) Small Star Tip/Nozzle no. 3

Using the star nozzle/tip you can make three types of simple borders on a cupcake.
