TikTok is a foodie haven where you’ll find everything from viral recipes as well as cookie recipes that will make you cook up a storm in the kitchen. Recently, another food trend we’ve spotted on our FYP (For You Page) is adorable cupcakes that will take your baking game to the next level.
Don’t be put off by the seemingly intricate and detailed designs though, these are surprisingly easy to replicate at home – you might even stop spending on overpriced cupcakes once you’ve mastered these. Exceptional baking skills are a plus, but not compulsory – the only trick to have up your sleeve is to have a variety of piping tools in your baking arsenal.
Ready to have some fun in the kitchen and let your creativity run wild? Check out our cutest cupcake finds on TikTok up ahead for your inspiration!

It’s been a long time since we’ve gone on a school field trip – or even a campfire, which is why this cupcake would totally be up your alley if you want to get yourself psyched for an outdoor adventure.
