Like many people I have been watching the Red Nose bake off over the last couple of weeks and as a result I decided to make a few little buns. Not red nose ones but even so I really enjoyed making them.
The ingredients I used are as follows:
6oz Margarine or butter
6oz caster sugar
7 oz self raising flour
Cream the margarine and sugar together. Beat in the eggs and fold in the flour. That's it.
I added 1 teaspoon of rose water to the mixture to give them a lovely unusual flavour.
I also added half a teaspoon of rose water to carry through the Turkish delight flavour.
The flowers were made using fondant icing and flower and blossom cutters.
The cupcakes tasted gorgeous with just a hint of the rose flavour coming through.
