So far this Valentine's week we've covered the hearts and the chocolate. But what about flowers? Those grocery store roses are seriously overpriced and end up dying within 2 days, so why not give some flowers that won't break the bank. Why not put them on top of cupcakes?
"how to" I did awhile back. Those turned out MUCH better! Or if that's a little more effort than you want to put into it, simply cut strips of fondant and roll them up to make ribbon roses. (See this quick video at CakeJournal for a visual.)
I was a bit disappointed with the way my roses looked on the cupcake, so I decided to break out my little heart cutter I used to cut the center of my Linzer cookies with and make little heart toppers.
Hopefully I'll have better luck tomorrow with the one thing I've been absolutely terrified of making.. caramel.
