*Rose Petal Cup Cakes*

I found this lovely cupcake recipe on UKTV Food, Rose Petal Cup cakes ~ perfect for Valentines Day methinks and don't they just look so sweet?

Here is the recipe:

Makes 12


150g softened unsalted Butter
150g caster sugar
3 medium Eggs, at room temperature
150g self-raising flour
1 tbsp rose water
100ml Milk
1 packet instant royal icing
rose petals or silver balls to decorate


1. Preheat the oven to 190C/gas 5. Line a 12-hole muffin tray with papers.
2. Using a wooden spoon, cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add the eggs, one by one, stirring well between each addition. If the mixture threatens to curdle, add a tablespoon of the flour to stabilise it.
3. Fold in the remaining flour, followed by the rose water.
Next, start adding the milk - you may not need it all. What you want is a batter that will just fall off the spoon if you shake it a little.
4. Spoon the mixture into the muffin papers and bake in the oven until cooked through and golden, about 20 minutes.
Turn out onto a rack to cool.
5. Make up a big batch of royal icing and spoon onto the cakes.
Leave to set before decorating with rose petals or silver balls.

    Thanks so much for the comment on the post about my Dad, it was so nice of you to post. I'm glad yesterday is over but it helped a lot knowing that people were thinking of us.

    Those cupcakes look beautiful! I've made some with crystallised rose petals before but those look nicer :)
