  1. Place the Tomoya template or AVO logo template onto a cutting board and cover it with a sheet of acetate.

  4. Refrigerate in between each of the colours and after the last colour.
  5. Colour the buttercream with purple food colouring.
  6. Spread purple buttercream on each cupcake and create a flat top, using a palette knife, and smooth out the sides as well.
