    1. Visit The French Kitchen. Located on the Corner of Victoria Ave and Carrington Rd, Castle Hill.
    2. Speak to the friendly and helpful staff to assist you in your creation. Feel free to call ahead to reserve the three vanilla naked cakes (also available in chocolate).
    3. Open up the 12 pack of Uniced Vanilla Cupcakes and line them up, ready to be decorated. 
    4. Take a single disposable piping bag and insert the plastic piping nozzle into the very corner of the bag. 
    5. Open up the tub of Buttercream Icing and, using a spatula, spoon out the buttercream into the piping bag. Be sure to not over fill the bag.
    6. Take your chosen Food Colouring, remember to give it a firm shake before opening, open it up and dip a toothpick into the mixture and add slowly until you have the desired colour.
    7. Cut the corner of the piping bag and start piping onto the cupcakes until all have a good amount of delicious sweet buttercream on top. Remember a little goes a long way!
    8. When the icing has finished being piped, take out your edible sugar decorations (here we have our sugar hearts, a range of designer sprinkles and more) and get creative with your final designs.
    9. Snap a photo of your final product and share your master piece. Remember to tag us @the_french_kitchen on Instagram or @thefrenchkitchencastlehill on Facebook.
