Question: What occasions are appropriate for a cupcake with chocolate writing?

Answer: All occasions are appropriate for a cupcake with chocolate writing.

This fun alternative to regular frosting looks complicated but it is so easy! All you have to do is buy some chocolate candy melts and- you guessed it!- melt them down in the microwave. I would try to buy proper candy melts meant for decorating with chocolate. Usually they can be found at the grocery store. If you can’t find them there, try a party or decorating store like iParty or Michael’s. They come in huge bags so one trip may last you a while! If you melt down a regular chocolate bar, the chocolate can produce a white, waxy coating. It still tastes fine but it doesn’t look as good the candy melts!

I piped these words using a Ziploc bag so clean up was quick and easy. Make sure to pipe your letters onto wax paper thickly enough so they peel off easily and don’t break! As a precaution I made a few different versions in case some of the letters broke (which they did).

Who wouldn’t prefer this over a measly thank you card?
