Have all of your decorating materials ready to go. Suggestions include frosting, gel icing, sprinkles, chocolate chips, assorted candies, knives, spoons, piping bags (a ziploc bag with a corner snipped off works well), food coloring, pretzels, etc. You should have a plate to display the finished cupcakes.
