I haven't heard of "cup cake" flour, what is that? I also love that swirl, is it buttercream or fondant folds? great for a bridal shower "tea time" theme :-)

This is for Tortitas. Dude, it's 3/4 cup of cake flour.

Please tell us how you did the frosting under the rose or create a tutorial if you can make the time. It looks great!

The frosting pattern looks like it may be done with a large drop flower tip base, followed with the next smaller size, drop flower tip, on top of that.

Beautifully done. A tutorial on the frosting technique please.

Hi. I would also like a tutorial on the icing & why kind of roses are they ? I am making my wedding cake & I want to make it a rose theme. The cupcakes look beautiful.

ludette Says... 2014-02-07 07:56:09

Hi where do you get rose water or how can u make it

tortitas Says... 2014-02-07 08:47:41

thank you for the clarification, I sure read it too fast without pausing on the cup and then cake flour. And by the way, I'm not a dude!

Two questions about the almond rose water cupcake. What do you do for the cupcake papers stay so straight and clean and how did you do the icing. Loved the look.

Wow! These are lovely! Can't wait to try the recipe... but I have all the same questions: Where can I get rose water? How do you get the liners to stay so pretty..? And do you have a tutorial on the icing technique? They are absolutely beautiful! Love them!
