What Kind of Buttercream is Best for Buttercream Piping?
Any medium consistency buttercream recipe would work well for these dragon cupcakes.
We like to use a crusting "American Buttercream" which is a simple combination of butter (or shortening or a combo of both), confectioners sugar, a splash of milk, pinch of salt, and flavorings.
As I mentioned, a medium consistency buttercream is great for piping these dinosaur cupcakes.
I consider medium consistency to be soft enough to easily flow from a piping bag, but thick enough to hold its shape - whether you are piping dinosaurs, cupcake swirls, or buttercream borders.
If your buttercream is too thick, add a little more milk. If your buttercream frosting is too thin, add a bit more confectioners sugar.
