My husband loves strawberry cupcakes. I don't. I love strawberries... and I really love him. So, I made him some strawberry cupcakes for Valentine's.
Since I'm always wanting to try new ways to decorate, I decided to make them into roses. Buttercream roses, that is.
If you've been a fan on Facebook since the beginning (before I had this blog), you know I've done quite a few buttercream roses cakes.
A birthday cake - originally posted on AdventuresinSavings.com.
A very bright birthday cake... for a grandma with a "bright" personality!! 🙂
And an anniversary cake.... for my pastor and his wife.
Anyway, my friend Kristen suggested that the roses would be great on cupcakes, and I've seen them on cookies too!
So that's what I did... and I love the way they turned out! So did my son Joshua... he wanted a bite!
Don't you think this is a fabulous idea? Instead of giving your love a dozen roses... give her a dozen rose cupcakes. You could do these in any color... white, red, pink, yellow... any color of the rainbow!
The best of both worlds right?
If you want to do these, all you'll need is a pile of cupcakes, some buttercream frosting (or cream cheese frosting) and a Wilton 1M tip. You can see Amanda from I am Baker's tutorial on how to pipe Buttercream Roses here.
Any questions about these cupcakes or cake? Please leave them in the comments!
