Cupcakes with buttercream icing

Cupcakes with buttercream icing

Today I have been making cupcakes with buttercream. I used a vanilla pound cake and buttercream icing for the top.

For the decorations I used small flowers made out of sugar paste/fondant icing and some sugar roses made of royal icing.

    These are amazing cupcakes…I made my first batch for a birthday this weekend but they were dry and crusty but the decorating looked great, so I guess you could say I’m halfway there! The look of all your desserts look so impressive. I have read all of your recipes, but do ypu have a no fali wasy one that I can try…chocolate or vanilla?

    Thanks
