Vanilla Rose Cupcakes

As part of National Cupcake week i  have planned to get to get busy in the kitchen making a range of different cupcakes to celebrate my love of the little cakes. Today's offerings are vanilla rose cupcakes.

They are made using one of my favourite sponge cake receipes:

6oz Self Raising flour
6oz Butter
6oz Caster Sugar
3 Eggs
1 Teaspoon baking powder.
1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract

I creamed together the butter, vanilla and sugar, add eggs one by one and beat and then add the sifted flour and mix. I then added the baking powder and beat in. I bake for about 20 minutes at 175.

The buttercream topping is 6oz butter, 12oz icing sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 3 teaspoons of cold water.

To create the rose effect i piped using the 1B nozzle, starting in the middle and working anti-clockwise. I used green sugarpaste to create the litte leaves and to finish i added silver shimmer spray to give a sparkly effect.
