Edible Obsession: How to Make Rose Cupcakes

Edible Obsession: How to Make Rose CupcakesIf 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…
Edible Obsession: How to Make Rose CupcakesAll 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.
Edible Obsession: How to Make Rose Cupcakes 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.

Another big thanks to Yoni Goldberg and Lauren Lowstan for this tutorial!

    Oh no, please could you correct it : it is “voilà” and not “viola” which means : raped (to rape, past tense).

  • Marion

    Oh my, they look so yummy ! My cupcakes never look that good as I always manage to fail the toping :/ Also indeed in French viola sounds really weird, you should correct this as Antoinette and natalia pointed it out 😉

    !!! How Dr.Ukaka Save My Broken Heart Of Marriage Today !!!

    Glorious be unto Dr. Ukaka the great man and ever, my name is Sarah from Taxes city usa. since 1 and a half year I have witness what is called heart broken. my boyfriend that promised me marriage failed me and impregnate me and leave,he dump me,he stop calling” he stop picking my calls,and he no longer respond to me. I have be looking for solution,I fall into the hands of fake spell caster,they rough me off and took my money without help.I have cried,I have weep”and tears runs out of eyes. The silentness in my heart brought me to the deepest path of failure that I lost my job. Crying all day,because of my life was lonely. So thanks to Ukaka that came into my life and brought me the greatest joy that was lost. I saw his mail while browsing and I contact and tell him what I am passing through with no doubt because what saw about him,was enough to believe. And I was given words of solution on what to do. I can’t really help thinking about it I have tried to see what I can do, I manage to provide him some materials and he help me with the rest,after casting the spell, 12hrs later he came with rose on his hand and I was even about going out,i saw him in front of my door when he sees me he knee and said he is dying I should forgive him and accept him back he was crying,I can’t wait to let him finish I quickly crab him and kiss him, just then” he said he is restless without me, just as the prophet has said he will be. He brought out a ring and put it on my hand. Our wedding day was scheduled,1week after we got married. today makes it 2weeks and we are living happily I don’t know how to praise him enough, he has done me a thing I can never forget. And I can’t really share to myself alone, I want y’all to help me praise him because if it is wasn’t for him I already plan of committing suicide. But right now I am now so happy more than I was before. And you out there crying for help you’ve already got one,Ukaka is the man that you need in all rampart. contact his address if you need his service, [email protected] also contact him on his web site: freedomlovespelltemple.yolasite.com
