Step 3

Mix the royal icing sugar with a few drops of water until you have a thick paste, then add to a small sandwich bag.

Step 4

Snip a tiny corner off the sandwich bag, making sure you snip away from the icing as you donít want the tip to fall in the food. Pipe around the edge of the stars with the royal icing.

Add the white sanding sugar straight away or the icing will dry and it wonít stick.

Step 5

Mix the gold sanding sugar and edible gold stars together.

Step 6

Ice the cupcakes using a Wilton 1M nozzle. To pipe this swirl, youíll need to start in the centre and go out towards the paper, following using the paper as a guide back to the outside edge where you started and follow up in a spiral once more, finishing in the centre by pushing down slightly and pulling up quickly. Add the stars and sugar.

Step 7

Push the stars into the centre of the cupcakes. You may need to trim the spaghetti a little more so they are just above the icing. Your cupcakes are now ready to serve. Enjoy!
