Crafty Fridays: Rose Pink Vanilla Butter Cupcakes

I tried out my new piping gun and made some cupcakes a few weeks ago and here are the results:

They are vanilla butter cakes with piped butter cream. They did turn out quite delicious, although I hope to practice and perfect them to improve on the taste factor so that I can sell them and hopefully cater for parties and functions one day-I am so dreaming, I felt like I had worked all day after making these and it took a couple of days to recover but I had so much fun making them!

Mixing up the ingredients

All ready to bake

Fresh out of the oven!

Preparing the butter cream icing

So my piping needs more practice, but that's why I'm saving to go to cake decorating school. I know I'd love it!

Next time I think I will use two baking cases instead of just one so the cakes don't show through the paper (I'm a perfectionist). I received pretty good feedback, so overall I'm pretty pleased.

I'm hopefully going to attempt another batch tomorrow for Mothers Day. I'm thinking pretty floral cases with icing topped with roses and butterflies!

Absolutely gorgeous! I like the display "tree" for showing them off! The ones you are planning for Mother's Day sound fantastic. Please take pix!

Thanks!! I know, I love it too, I got it really cheap at a discount store! My Mother's Day cupcakes didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted them too, but yes I took pictures!

Hey! I haven't been on your blog in forever (sorry about that!). Those cupcakes look so good, I'm a little hungry now. =)

haha you're so cute- you don't need to apologise! I am way behind in blog reading also, it becomes ridiculuous to keep up at times. Thanks for the feedback, I'm glad they look edible!

Your piping looks really good! Better that I could do I'm sure.
