My husband turned one of those milestones that end with a zero last month. We had a casual afternoon/evening barbecue party, with friends coming and going as they pleased – definitely easier for families with kids. I made most of the food for the party (and cursed myself for giving myself the stress in the week before!).
I’ve wanted an excuse to try cupcake buttercream roses for a while. If I make cupcakes for the kids, I don’t like smothering them with mountains of buttercream – too unhealthy for everyday eating. But having a big group of people over was just the excuse I needed.
There are lots of tutorials around. I used this one at Bella Cupcakes and was happy how they turned out.
Just in case you were wondering, they weren’t all perfect…
…but they still tasted great! I used my basic chocolate cake recipe. Kids and adults gobbled them up – no leftovers for me!
What’s your favourite way to decorate cupcakes?
