Tutorial Time on SpeedyTV - Challenge 35 - Faux Frosting

Today's new technique/tutorial is given by one of our Tutorial Time on SpeedyTV Design Team members, Katie.  Okay, I say this every week, but this is a new technique for me - I hadn't tried this one previously.  I applied the technique to the top layer of icing on the cupcake and it frothed and puffed up just as the tutorial said it would!  My first attempt, I applied it as icing all over the cupcake - and I obviously used too much - because it ballooned up so much!!

Anyway, please join us at Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.'s Tutorial Time on SpeedyTV - Challenge 35.  Just hop over to the hot link directly above and click on the Tutorial Time tab and then Challenge 35.  Check out the tutorial and make your card - drop it into Mr. Linky - and the winner will be awarded the stamp set shown below!
