Valentine's Cupcakes

Today was supposed to be all about cleaning but lo and behold that didn't happen... main focus was on baking, this time cupcakes, can you imagine? ;D Anyway,  I most oftenly use my trusted Staedter star tip for decorating cupcakes, but today I felt like learning something new, and stumbled upon the above technique, using a rose petal tip instead. I made some buttercream icing according to this recipe I found on the lovely "Baka baka liten kaka" blog. I then coloured half the icing with Wilton's Rose icing colour and used a bigger rose petal for the white and a smaller one for the pink icing. I really like the end result even if it took a while to master the use of the rose petal tip but it was sooo worth it : )

As you can imagine this project has not done wonders in the cleaning department, so off I go and do some chores, but got quite an energy boost having eaten all that buttercream frosting...

See you again soon. Xoxo Christine's Corner

(ok got to admit Gossip Girl is my guilty pleasure, and just couldn't resist the above ;D)
