Rose Frosting Cupcakes for Valentine’s Day

rose frosting cupcakes

After compiling my Valentine’s Day inspiration board on Pinterest, I became obsessed with icing roses. I watched video after video on YouTube on how to make them. I bought a Wilton #125 tip to make the flowers above. Mine turned out more like carnations.. which works for me. I’m very proud of myself. If I can do it, you can do it.

To make the simple swirled roses below, I used a Wilton 1M icing tip and frosted the cupcake from the inside out. Megan and I love this butter cream frosting recipe. And Duncan Hine’s cake mix was BOGO this week at Publix! Semi-homemade goodness.

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
