For some strange reason I have wanted to make rose flavored anything for-EVER!!
I think it came from seeing rosewater literally everywhere and just leaving it so long before actually buying it and just making something!!
These cupcakes are my favorite cupcakes! I personally don’t think I have ever made anything so pretty!! I really focused on the frosting as they were for a Mother’s Day Celebration in our house!
Now the actual rosewater, as I had never used it before I was quite careful as it smelled quite strong. I liked the taste and next time I will definitely use more!
Here’s the recipe:
280g caster sugar
1tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp rosewater
2 large eggs
Preheat the oven to 180º and prep the cupcake tin.
Combine the margarine, flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
Mix the milk and rosewater together in a jug, then add the eggs.
Mix 2/3 of the milk into the dry ingredients, when mixed thoroughly add the rest of the milk.
Divide into cupcake tins and bake for 20 minutes.
500g icing sugar ( I use Whitworths)
160g unsalted butter
1-3 tsp rosewater (add one at a time and taste as you go)
3 coloured pastes of your choice
Mix the butter and Icing sugar together until will combined.
Again mix the rosewater into the milk in a jug, then slowly pour into icing mixture.
Whisk until really fluffy.
Divide the icing into 3 bowls and add a small amount of colour paste to each and combine until you get your desired colours.
Grab your icing bag and choose your piping tip, fold the bag with tip inside into a tall slim glass (have the bag fold over the sides of the glass), using a knife “butter” 3 parts of the inside of the bag with a different colour on each part, keep going until they are almost touching inside the bag.
Then when cupcakes are cool enough pipe your icing!
