Edible Obsession: How to Make Rose Cupcakes

If you follow my team and me on Instagram, you probably remember us posting photos of the most delicious baked goods a few weeks ago. I rounded up my LaurenConrad.com editors, my favorite photographer Yoni Goldberg, and one of my friends who happens to be a fabulous baker, Lauren Lowstan. We threw on our Little Market aprons and created so many amazing things throughout the day (stay tuned, I’ll be posting them over the next few weeks!). But one of my favorite tricks I learned was how to make rose cupcakes.

Lauren showed me that it is pretty easy to create these lovely little cakes. She took the reigns first, and then she let me give it a whirl…

How to Make Rose Cupcakes
All you need are your cupcakes, icing, red food dye, an icing bag, and a 2D icing tip. And here’s how it goes…

Take your cupcake and your icing bag and start in the middle. Then, simply squeeze the icing while making a circle around the entire circumference of the cupcake.

Easy as that! This new kitchen trick might be one of my favorite ones yet. In the very first photo above, I just added a little mint leaf to the side of my cupcake icing and a pretty candle. Consider the treats for your bestie’s next birthday covered! These are also great to make for Easter celebrations and other spring holidays.
