Pretty Cupcakes

I can't believe it's Monday again.  Where did the weekend go.
I did manage to make some cupcakes as promised.
I was absolutely thrilled with the results.  I was going to pipe the butter cream on but it was using so much that I decided to spread it on instead.
I loved this button mould when Heather at Miss Cakeaholic used hers and couldn't wait to buy my own from Amazon.
I was particularly proud of my handmade roses.
The majority of the equipment came from the Range in Doncaster.  They have a very good cake making/decorating section now.
The flower cutter is from a range of silicon moulds by Blossom Art and was one of my birthday presents from Joe and Heather.  I have finally got the hang of using it.
I used a basic fairy cake recipe from the Vintage Cakes book by Jane Brocket for the sponge and although Steve is being good he did waiver and try one just to be polite!
