- Bake cupcakes according to the recipe.
- Make the Swiss Meringue Buttercream and divide the batch into two colors (pink and white. Select your preferred colors if you don’t want to do pink and white.)
- Fill two piping bags with 1M and 4B piping tips (or pick your favorite piping tips)
- Use a piping tip to core the cupcake to create a hole for the sprinkles.
- Pour sprinkles in the hole. (Omit Step 5-6 if not doing the sprinkles core)
- Cover the cupcake with the cut out top.
- Pipe the buttercream on the cupcake using either 1M or 4B.
- Repeat the steps until all of the cupcakes are filled with sprinkles and piped with buttercream. Sprinkle the top of each cupcake with your favorite sprinkles.
