My husband's birthday this year fell on the same day as our weekly D&D game, and that called for something special to share with all our friends. What's a girl to do? I had seen piped chocolate decorations before, mostly hearts and other Martha Stewart-style kitsch, but what, I thought, if I made piped chocolate outlines of our characters? Never mind that I can't draw and I'd never, before that time, piped anything in my life. I wasn't about to let such paltry considerations stand between me and glory.
Step 1: What You'll Need
For the D&D miniatures:
1 bag melting chocolate (or real chocolate, if you're hardcore)
Decorating tips and couplers. I used a #3 round tip.
A drawing to trace
Clear notebook sheet protectors
For the cupcakes:
Your cupcake recipe of choice.
Your icing of choice. It should be a buttercream of something that has similar body.
Cupcake lining papers.
A 1M star cake decorating tip, with a coupler that matches
