Mother's Day is fast approaching, and so too an occasion for which roses are gifted in abundance. Though it's more my style to give edible versions of things. These cupcakes are mixed spice buttermilk cupcakes, topped with orange and cinnamon buttercream. They're then adorned with fondant roses and leaves.
I chose pink roses for their meaning of thanks and appreciation, and yellow for the joy, friendship and gladness that they represent.
Every time I make roses I opt for cartoonish version, so I decided to go for a little more realism this time. I'll probably invest in a veiner next time I make these to give the petals proper texture.
