    What type of shortening do you use?

    I'd take the easy option and use a tin, Wilton have a huge range (I'm sounding like I work for them!) and are easy to use. Its best to use spongy kind of cakes when piping. I don't know if you have much experience with piping, but there are loads of great videos on YouTube and (again) on the Wilton site that offer good tips and techniques.

    I don't use this, but you can use copha. Any Coles or woolies should have it

    Here's my cupcakes the sesame street big bird, oscar and cookie will have better features but I didnt have all the stuff I needed and I used butter icing because I ran out of shortening! Definitely a fan of using shortening here too!
