Red Rose Cupcakes

Yields: One dozen cupcakes
Ingredients:

Chocolate cake mix (and all the ingredients to make it) – most cake mixes yield 24 cupcakes, so divide all ingredients in half to make a total of 12
1 stick butter, softened
2 cups icing sugar, sifted
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 ½ tbsp milk (add a little at a time)
½ tsp red gel food coloring
Green decorating frosting
Wilton tip #21
Wilton tip #101

 

Directions:

 

Prepare chocolate cupcakes according to directions. Allow to cool completely before decorating.

In a large bowl, beat together butter, icing sugar, cocoa powder and ½ tbsp milk. Start on low and gradually increase to high. Add more milk accordingly (you don’t have to use all of the milk) until ingredients are smooth and well combined. The buttercream should form semi-stiff peaks.

 

 

Add red gel food coloring and beat with electric mixer until completely tinted.

Scoop red buttercream into a piping bag with Wilton tip #21 attached.

 

 

Start out by piping out one circle on the center of each cupcake, about ½ an inch in diameter.

To complete the cupcakes, pipe out 5 more flower/rose circles around the center flower.

 

 

Attach Wilton tip #101 on green decorating frosting. Pipe out 3-4 leaves on each cupcake.

 

These Red Rose Cupcakes are easy to decorate cupcakes, perfect for garden parties, valentines day or just to show someone you care.

 

Serve and enjoy!
