Gorgeous pail of roses by Cassie's Cakes

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

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!

The vintage wedding is quite popular at the moment, and why wouldn’t it be, with shows like Mad Men displaying how wonderful the female figure can look in those classic 50s style dresses, but if you choose to go this way, you may wonder how you can merge your vintage theme with your love for the modern cupcake.  Well Pretty Witty Cakes shows us just how this can be achieved!

Suzi has created gorgeous china tea cup cupcakes filled with different colored roses!  Apparently it was quite a fiddly job to complete, but it looks sensational!
