  • Remove from cupcakes from oven and let them cool in the pan for 5 minute
  • Take them out and let them cool down completely otherwise your frosting will run. I let mine cool for an hour.

  • When the cupcakes are completely cooled you can frost them with your chocolate frosting.
  • I used a bakers spatula to apply the frosting but you can use a knife as well
  • Don't worry if it looks messy as you will be covering it up soon

  • Take your decorating gel and instead of cutting the top off use a safety pin and poke a hole in the top so you have a thinner stream coming out for writing
  • Test your writing skills on a piece of paper towel to make sure you get the look you want before you start on your cookies
  • Cut your Milano cookies in half so you have more tombstones to put on your cupcakes
  • Write RIP as close to the top as you can and insert them into your cupcakes
