springtime cupcakes

What a sweet day it was… A beautiful early Springtime brunch and shower of gifts and blessings to celebrate the impending birth {of another granddaughter} with family and friends.

The pink cupcakes were filled with dark chocolate ganache and topped with a swirl of vanilla/almond buttercream. The yellow cupcakes were filled with Lemon Butter and topped with a swirl of lemon buttercream.

Each rose was created from fondant {it’s so easy to make a batch of versatile fondant} that I made a few days prior to the event. For the underside of each rose, I piped a green leaf and then placed the roses on top and pressed gently into the buttercream swirls on each cupcake.

For the pink rose swirl I used a Wilton 1M tip and for the Lemon swirls I used a Wilton 1A tip.

I ordered the cupcake wrappers from Amazon. There are a number of styles to choose from.
