Here are some pretty rose cupcakes that you can make for Mother’s Day,
or for Teacher Appreciation Week.
I love making these buttercream roses…
they look impressive but are actually quite simple!
For these, I decided to add another color to the rose tips.
You will need a decorating bag fitted with a Wilton 1M tip.
Add some food coloring gel in a straight line, down the inside of your bag.
I used AmeriColor deep pink, which comes in a little squeeze bottle.
Fill the bag with your favorite frosting and twist the top closed.
Starting in the center of your cupcake,
pipe the frosting in a circular motion, moving toward the outside.
Now for some cute packaging!
9 oz. plastic cups are just the right size for cupcakes!
Simply hold the cupcake directly over the cup and drop it in.
Wrap each cup in some clear cellophane,
tie it closed with ribbon and you have perfectly packaged cupcakes!
