New baby girl rose cupcakes.

My good friend just gave birth to a little baby girl at Matilda–read more about that hospital/hotel here! I wanted to bring a little something special to the hospital that celebrated that it was a girl… they wanted it to be a surprise and EVERYONE had been telling her it was a boy as she was carrying quite small and very in front.

I was so excited that this new method of decorating from Glorious Treats. As it turns out, all you need to make a rose is a Wilton 2D tip… instead of frosting from outside swirling in towards the center, you start on the inside and go to the outside. I also used her version of cream cheese frosting (note the butter comes out of the fridge just ten minutes before and the cream cheese is straight from the fridge). I think because of the humidity here I had to add 1.5x the powdered sugar called for, but otherwise it was a great frosting to work with. The adorable card is from The Social Type and features a beautiful foil embossed seal!

Note: my airplane trays bought for my travel party are SO useful!

  3. Beautiful cupcakes. Can’t wait to try this technique.

  4. I used this technique on a birthday cake for my daughter Rose (8 yrs/old).
    It was just like this site, but in shades of pink.

    (Would a Rose by any other name *taste* as sweet?)
