Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is the icing I used for Danish Chocolate Cupcakes. All you need to do is dip the tip of the cupcake in, give it a swirl and pull it out. It saves a lot of mess and time. It may seem a little too soft to begin with, but it becomes firmer as it cools so don't add too much icing sugar.
