You could lay a stencil down & dust coco powder over it. That would leave a pattern on the whipped cream. Granted you would have to make the whipped cream smooth & then resmooth after removing the stencil.

Otherwise, I would try the piping. I had never piped until the other day & was quite impressed with my skills. ;) Also, if this is just an experiment cake, this is the perfect time to practice piping. :)

First I'd need to learn piping, which I've never done in my life. But it's worth a try. Thanks!

Naw, jump right in! If you bake the others first, you will be tempted to eat them. And that's a lot of extra calories.

You could just pipe the triskell onto the top with a little buttercream frosting, maybe....

I'm probably getting ahead of myself, since I haven't baked a cake from scratch in over forty years. But I've been almost obsessed the last few days with coming up with an Irish Coffee cupcake. Coffee-flavored cake with Irish whiskey in the batter and a simple whipped cream frosting (since Irish coffee is always topped with whipped cream). Garnish -- my kitchen is totally unequipped to deal with anything like fondant, but I keep thinking of a fondant Irish triskell (a three-pointed design with a spiral inside). Hmmm...how could I do the triskell without fondant?

Maybe I should try baking some chocolate or vanilla from scratch to get back into practice first?
