“A swap partner sent me a calendar with imaginatively decorated cupcakes. This one was so lovely I just had to post it. It would be a beautiful part of the menu for a wedding or shower or Mother's Day. Using commercial cake mix and frosting cuts down on the preparation time but feel free to use you favourite homemade recipes. Handmade paper can be purchase in craft stores and I've even seen it in Dollarama. If you are using real rose petals, make sure they haven't been sprayed with pesticides or herbicides. Non Food ingredients you will need: 24 White paper baking cups Handmade paper Double-stick tape Ribbon More decorating ideas: Use food colouring to tint the frosting to match the handmade paper or ribbon. String charms to the ribbon and use hot glue or tape to anchor to paper liners. Cut out centre of 4-inch oilproof paper doilies and pull doily "ring" up from bottom of cupcake to just under the frosting. Pipe decorations with frosting.”
