Rosey Posey Cupcakes ♥

I was so inspired to make these Rosey Posey Cupcakes after reading the lovely Louise's post yesterday over on Tattooed Lady With A Baby. She had made delicious looking rose cupcakes, with rose flavouring and a jam centre (seriously, can you say yum!), and having not ever experimented with flavourings in my cupcakes before (apart from the go-to vanilla extract) I decided to take a leaf out of Louise's book and make some pretty and delicious with a hint of rose. Now I didn't want to copy Louise to the 'T' so I've put my own twist on these cupcakes, making a chocolate sponge, leaving out the jam and adding pink icing, rose decorations and pink glitter as the decoration.

  I wanted to have a go at making my own roses and even bought some candy pink fondant icing to have a whirl at it but it'll have to go on the 'to-do' list, but you can be sure to expect more rosey/floral loveliness in food form sometime in the near future. Thank you once again to Louise for the inspiration - I really am being honest when I say that other bloggers are the best source of inspiration ever. I really love how these cupcakes turned out, they're so pretty!

 To make these Rosey Posey Cupcakes you will need -

50g butter
115g soft dark brown sugar
2 large eggs
115g plain white flour
1/2tsp bicarbonate of soda
25g cocoa powder
125ml soured cream
Rose flavouring (I used Nielsen-Massey Rose Water)
Dr. Oetker Pink Icing (I'd recommend buying two if you have a large batch)
Pink edible glitter
Rose decorations, you can always make your own if you fancy it!


How to make these pretty cupcakes -

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line a cupcake tin with cupcake cases.
2. Place the butter, sugar, eggs, flour, bicarbonate of soda and cocoa powder in a large bowl and beat together until smooth. Fold in the soured cream and mix well. Add half a teaspoon of rose flavouring and mix (the rose smell was amazing!). Spoon the mixture into the cupcake cases.
3. Bake for 20 minutes or until a knife comes out clear when inserted into the middle of the cupcakes.
4. Take out of oven and leave to cool completely on a wire rack. Top tip - I cover my cupcakes with a tea towel to keep in the moisture.
5. When cool apply icing of you choice. I used Dr. Oetker Pink Icing as I was short on time (I was making these while my son was at playschool!) and I really love the taste of this particular icing. Plus, the pretty pink shade is perfect for the rose design.
6. Decorate with the rose decoration of your choice, I used Cake Angels Flower Power pack.
7. Sprinkle with pink glitter, I gave generous amounts on each cupcake as I really can't get enough of the edible glitter!
8. I added extra decoration to my cupcakes by placing blue butterfly cases around them, I thought these were really pretty, they matched my cake stand and it just makes them all the more special I think.
9. Serve, share will friends and family and enjoy!

Thank you once again to Louise for the inspiration, she's a gem, please do stop by her blog Tattooed Lady With A Baby and share the love. I hope you like the look of my Rosey Posey Cupcakes. Now to have a mini tea party with the family!

    1. Frosting is totally the best part AND it's not easy to make it look as pretty as Fiona did. I love these.

    2. Mmm... Frosting... The only thing I can find about these cupcakes that is a negative - and it's a small one - is that I would feel bad eating these! The frosting is so well done, it almost feels like a crime to gulp them down. And I AM a cupcake gulper.

  21. How gorgeous are these cupcakes? They would be perfect for a bridal or baby shower...or simply a tea. If only I was talented enough to create such beautiful things...typically I am a bit of a Pinterest failure.

  25. These are just so pretty!! I like chocolate sponge, but not sure about rose flavored food. Also I'd skip the jam.
    I love the roses on top! They're my favorite part of the cupcake that's for sure. My oldest daughter doesn't like cupcakes because they're usually too pretty to eat!

  44. You got me curious as to how rose flavored cakes taste like. I would have personally omitted the jam filling too (I've never been fond of that). The rose accents look so dainty and pretty – they really add a special touch.
