NEAT IDEA TO FROST CUPCAKES:

PUT FROSTING IN A PIPING BAG WITH A LARGE ROUND TIP (OR USE A ZIP TOP PLASTIC BAG WITH A CORNER CUT OFF), AND PIP A LARGE DOLLOP ON TOP OF EACH CUPCAKE. THEN USE ANOTHER BAG WITH A SMALLER TIP AND A DIFFERENT COLOR FROSTING TO MAKE A "BULL'S EYE" ON TOP OF EACH DOLLOP.
