These cupcakes are less adventurously flavoured than my last batch but I did manage to pipe roses onto them!

The ones with blue icing are chocolate cakes with vanilla icing and the ones with roses on are vanilla cakes and icing.  I topped the blue cakes with Dr Oetker Polka Dots which are little sugary disks and each cupcake also had the obligatory dusting of edible glitter.

The video below teaches you how to make the icing roses and it’s really easy to follow.

  1. They look gorgeous, I watched the ‘how to’ video as well, which was fascinating for smeone like me who is really useless at making cakes let alone decorating them(but your cupcakes blogs have me wanting to try it)! I have to say, your roses knock spots off the ones the lady made in the video! Was it as effortless as she made it look though, or does it take a little practise to get right?

    1. Thanks Charlie! They were actually pretty easy to do, after a few practise tries on some biscuits I was away – I thought they were going to be much harder!
