Yellow Cupcake Roses with Red Tips




This bouquet of yellow roses with red tips was created for an Options Pregnancy Resource Center volunteer appreciation banquet. It started out as plain yellow roses, but I decided to try hand painting the tips with a pinkish-red food coloring.

I used a basic buttercream icing and Wilton 1M tip (2D works too!) to create the roses. After I piped the roses I refrigerated the cupcakes to let the icing stiffen enough to paint the tips.

For a rough tutorial on putting a bouquet like this together, see this post.

The embellishments are a combination of tissue paper and fake flowers. I happen to have found all of the necessary supplies to make this bouquet at my local Wal-Mart.

After the fact I found this video tutorial which seems like a much easier way to accomplish a similar look: Live and learn I guess! This video will also show you how to create the rose technique itself. You’ll be amazed at how simple it actually is!
