How to Draw a Cupcake — Step by Step Guide
What better way to show off your artistic abilities than by drawing a delicious cupcake? You can use these steps to draw a realistic-looking or animated cupcake, and you can add your own style and improvise at each step.
To make the frosting, start by drawing a tip of a swirl; here’s a helpful tip: you can draw a horizontal and vertical line to ensure that the cupcake is drawn in the middle.
Step 2 — Draw the Topmost Part of the Frosting
Step 1: In the previous step, draw the tip of the frosting. Step 2: Draw a curved line on either side of the tip to create one layer of frosting. Step 3: Make sure you’re working from top to bottom, not the other way around.
Step 3 — Next, Add a Layer of Frosting
The next layer of frosting swirls should be attached to an oval shape; the more uneven your swirls are, the more realistic it will appear; don’t worry about making it even; instead, make it as fluffy as a pillow with lots of flaky icing.
Step 4 — Draw the Middle of the Frosting
Draw an oval shape in the middle of the icing to serve as the cake’s center, and then draw another oval shape beneath it that is slightly larger than the previous one to serve as the swirl on top of the original cake.
Step 5 — Draw the Last Layer of Frosting
Make a new layer of swirl right below the previous one by drawing a slightly larger oval shape, making sure that each layer of frosting from top to bottom is a little bigger than the one before it, and that the sizes of the swirls are arranged from smallest to largest, similar to how a Christmas tree is made.
Step 6 — Now, Draw the Wrapper of the Cupcake
Draw a bucket shape beneath the wrapper for the frosting swirls, keeping in mind that the swirls must be slightly larger than the wrapper to make the cupcake look more appetizing when viewed from the top.
Step 7 — Then, Draw the Folds of the Wrapper
Draw parallel and slanted vertical lines across the entire wrapper to create the illusion.
Step 8 — Put Sprinkles on the Frosting
Sprinkles are tiny sugar strands in short rod shapes called jimmies, as well as sprinkles in the shapes of spheres, circles, and crystals, giving you a lot of options when drawing sprinkles on top of your cupcake.
Step 9 — Add Your Topping of Choice
Now it’s time to decorate your cupcake with colors! This is where you can show off your artistic abilities and ability to mix and match various colors; the colors of your sprinkles must be different from the color of the frosting to ensure that they complement each other perfectly.
