SIMPLE Rose Petal Cupcakes perfect for Mother's Day or any day to make a girl smile! #cupcakes #roses #simplepartyfood

Cupcakes, as we’ve talked about before, will never go out of style due to their small, individual size.  A dozen cupcakes can have a dozen different toppings, frostings and themes.

You can’t do that with a cake.

So what makes these rose petal cupcakes so special?   Well … think Mother’s Day or bridal shower, baby shower, valentine’s day, birthdays… WHOA!  What about hundreds of them at your wedding!   Mind blown!

Cupcakes are great but what makes them so SPECIAL is the icing.  That’s where the magic bullet is.

HOW TO MAKE A ROSE PETAL CUPCAKE:

  1. Tint the icing whatever color you choose using food coloring.
  2. Secure a #1M decorating tip into a piping bag.
  3. Fold the bag over and fill up the bag with icing.  Fold it back over and push all the icing down to the bottom.
  4. In the middle of the cupcake, pipe a small amount of icing.
  5. Without lifting your piping bag, slowly work your way around, counter-clockwise, until you reach the outer edge of the cupcake.

The best part is you get to choose the color icing you want on each cupcake.  Choose light Spring colors like pale green, yellow, pink and pale purple for Mother’s Day or a Bridal shower.

Choose red, pink or white for Valentines Day or a birthday – add a sprig of mint to resemble leaves.
