Pink Rose Cupcakes have a hint of Rose water in the frosting which is a lovely way to add an extra little special touch to any pink occasion!  To add a little variety I also made a batch of my  Cream Cheese Lemon Frosting for half of our beautiful little cakes 🙂

Pink Rose Cupcakes have a couple of tricks you ought to know… most cake supply stores carry Rose Water and I liked the hint of rose flavor in the frosting!  If your crowd is up for trying something a little more adventurous then either cut it down a bit or don’t add it BUT, I thought it was a creative gourmet twist!

I used a Wilton 1M open star tip for the swirl on the these cute cakes… the zig zag is the same tip just piped back and forth in a wide line.  The sprinkles are the finishing touch!  The white sugar pearls and Jumbo Daisies are also from Wilton.  I bought all of these supplies at Orson Gygi’s in Salt Lake City, Utah. (They have an online store too!)  They’ve got just about everything you can imagine and probably even a few things you can’t… such an amazing variety of everything kitchen!!  I get lost in there for hours….
