some rose cupcakes i made today
it has rose flavored cake, infused with candied rose petals
then it’s topped with rose & mint flavored meringue icing (it’s actually a light mint green color because there’s some chemical reaction that goes on between the rose tea that i used for flavoring and the base of the egg whites- it’s actually super neat to watch!)
the decorations are a bunch of miniature roses made with homemade mint-flavored marshmallow fondant, dusted with sea green food-grade glitter, and then topped with cinnamon candies and chocolate crunchies.
i even put some of them in these neat rose-bouquet cups that i found in the baking aisle of walmart.
i’m actually quite proud of them. they taste even more delicious than they look- really very delicate and fresh!
they look like they’re ready to be served at a wedding or a garden party.
