My First Try at Making Roses for Cupcakes!

I've wanted to try this for sometime now. I looove cupcakes who
doesn't, right? But I've been afraid avoiding making roses,
(even though I have lots of my sweet 
Grandma Stella's fool proof Wilton tips)...


I finally got up the courage and tried some, I have a lot to learn
and need  much more practice for sure, but I took
them to work and the girls loooved them and my MacGiver
thought they were the BOMB, cutsie flowers and all!
I found the adorable cake plate while I was on Spring break,
at one of my fave thrift stores,
I looove the way the cupcakes look on it!
I'm sure I'll be practicing a lot more, I'm having
Bunco here next month and of course my theme
will be May Flowers!
I had so much fun I can hardly wait to
practice some more!

~so sweet~

~I was having so much fun~

~yep, those leaves need lots more practice~

~my MacGiver loooves when I say I need more practice~

~pink roses and white tulips~

~I looove my new cake plate and thrift store tablecloth~

I'm linking this to Faded Charm for White Wednesday

Well, I can't see how you need any more practice! How could they be any cuter? I love roses and those would be perfect for the tea I am doing in May. But how could I ever do that??

Victoria said...

Wow, I think you did a fantastic job!!! They look perfect, I'd be too afraid to eat them cuz they're so pretty!

Faded Charm said...

Thanks for sharing and have a nice day.

Deb those are awesome for your first try! You're a natural at cake decorating ~ you can come & decorate my cupcakes any day of the week! Love the plate and tablecloth!!! Wish Anchorage had more flea markets...athough Ozark is turning in my fav but the mix lots of new with a few old to make French Country.

sooooo pretty! good for you! My mouth started watering as I began scrolling down the photos because I can smell them from here! You did a fantastic job!

Debbie~ said...

Jeannie B. if I can do them, so can YOU, really... I didn't have to thrown any away, they may not all looked alike, but they did look pretty much like a rose, the tips Wilton have make it easy and honestly, you can go to YouTube and watch how to make them and it's a breeze from there! I made a
buttercream icing to frost the cupcakes and then just mixed white shortening with powdered sugar with a teeny tiny bit of coloring for the roses! My biggest problem was letting the icing get too warm, so the roses look a little sloppier at the end. I also just used Parchment paper cut into triangles cut the tip off after I folded them and stuck my Wilton tip into that and filled the bag...easy peasy! :) Deb~

They look wonderful! You did a great job! My mom used to make cakes and always did a beautiful job but alas I did not receive the cake decorating gene :( Maybe one of my girls have it though! Thanks for stopping by, Theresa

Those are adorable cupcakes! I have never learned to decorate with icing. I went as far as buying the pastry bag and tips, but have not used them yet. Your post has inspired me to give it a try. Your roses are beautiful!!
