Mothers Day Rose Swirl Cupcakes

Thursday, 15 March 2012

These are Mother’s Day inspired Vanilla Cupcakes, the recipe used can be found in my previous Vanilla Cupcakes post! I originally made these as samples to take to Greenwich Market as I’m planning on doing a bake sale to raise some money for Macmillan Cancer Support. But being the bone idle bastard that I am I ceased to wake up on time…

For the decoration I used the tiniest smidge of 'Ruby' concentrated Sugarflare paste for the rose buttercream swirls, edible Sugarflare gold glitter and lastly, Americolor ‘Blue’ in the fondant. 

Do you have any creative suggestions for these cupcakes? I think they're a little bland! If you do please leave a comment and I'll try your ideas out!


  1. They are gorgeous as they are!!! I'm terrible at icing cupcakes...and admire your talent :)

  2. Thank you!!! Just had a look at your blog, absolutely in love with your Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies, i would never be able to get them to looks that perfect! But I'm gonna try nonetheless aha x

  3. Great work on the icing. I need a lot more practice!

  4. Thank you! It's amazing what a 3 hour cupcake baking lesson can teach you :)
