Well then why not give a bucket of cupcake roses? Not only do they look beautiful, but they have one thing that roses don’t! They taste fantastic too!
Many people want to know how to create this rose shape, and it is actually easier than you would think. All you need is the right nozzle tip and a dozen cupcakes to practice on! So while you are baking your practice cupcakes, check out this video from Gabrielle Feuersinger, owner of San Francisco’s Cake Coquette here at Chow.com
Now Gabrielle uses a pastry nail to get that PERFECT finish, but if you don’t have one, you can apply the technique directly onto the cupcake!
