Icing Cupcakes with a Spatula

Icing cupcakes with a spatula is hard for me. Is there an easy way put frosting on? My icing never look as good as the ones I see pictures.

There’s two things to keep in mind when frosting cupcakes with a spatula: 1) Make sure the frosting is the right consistency; 2) Make sure you have enough frosting on your knife. You can work the frosting in the bowl for a bit stirring it around and making sure it’s loose and not too stiff. That ensures it’s the right consistency. Next, clean off your spatula if you need to and then get a nice large dollop of frosting on the tip. You should be able to ice your cupcake in one stroke!
