Perfectly Packaged Rose Cupcakes

Here are some pretty rose cupcakes that you can make for Mother's Day,
or for Teacher Appreciation Week.


I love making these buttercream roses...
they look impressive but are actually quite simple!
For these, I decided to add another color to the rose tips.

You will need a decorating bag fitted with a Wilton 1M tip.
Add some food coloring gel in a straight line, down the inside of your bag.
I used AmeriColor deep pink, which comes in a little squeeze bottle.


Fill the bag with your favorite frosting and twist the top closed.


Starting in the center of your cupcake,
pipe the frosting in a circular motion, moving toward the outside.



Now for some cute packaging!
I saw this idea on Pinterest, and had to try it.

9 oz. plastic cups are just the right size for cupcakes!
Simply hold the cupcake directly over the cup and drop it in.


Wrap each cup in some clear cellophane,
tie it closed with ribbon and you have perfectly packaged cupcakes!


To get the cupcake out, you can stab it with a fork and lift it up.

Enjoy!

    1. To get them in the cup, I simply held the cupcake directly above it and dropped it in. To get them out, you can stab it with a fork and lift it right out. Enjoy! :0)

  34. This packaging is entirely wasteful. While it looks nice, plastic is bad for the environment. Even if you are washing and re-using the plastic cups it is a terrible idea because I know you are not washing and re-using the cellophane. Your cupcakes are beautiful -- now, please use your abundant creativity to come up with ecologically responsible packaging: the earth will thank you.

    1. FYI. Some, if not all, of the components used to produce the pc/laptop/phone, you used to type your comment have already added to the world's pollution problem. No doubt a lot of those components will also end up in landfills. Instead of wasting your abundant wisdom on us mere mortals, why not redirect your energies and to come up with more ecologically responsible forms of technological communication? WE will think YOU! That is all.

  35. OH. MY. GOSH!!!!! I found you via Build A Menu's FB page.

    My daughter has Celiac Disease, so every time she goes to a birthday party, she needs to bring along her own gluten-free cupcake. She also has Type 1 Diabetes, and needs insulin for every carbohydrate she eats or drinks.

    Her cupcakes often end up squished with part of the icing swiped off by the time we get there...which means I'm often guessing at how many carbs to subtract to make sure she gets the correct dose of insulin.

    Such a simple trick for a complicated dilemma!

    Thanks for sharing!!!

  36. For the packaging, did you use a flat square of clear cello or a bag? What size? I love this idea! I'm thinking of doing cupcake favors for my son's baptism party. Thanks!

    1. I have a large roll of cellophane (from Dollar Tree), and I cut squares out of it. I didn't measure, just cut one out and used it as a template for more. A bag would probably work too, I haven't tried that!

  37. I bought a cupcake once and the lady put it on the lid of a plastic cup and placed the cup on top of it....easy to get the cupcake out when you open. Thought it was such a good idea.

    ReplyDelete
  38. That's such a beautiful way to make roses have just a slight tint to it! Also, about the packaging way, just an idea, but I actually put the cupcake on a square piece of cellophane and then put the cup upside down over the cupcake (like a snow globe. That way, when people open the packaging, they won't have to get icing stuck on their fingers when they try to get the cupcake out.

    But yeah, I can't wait to try to decorate the cupcakes that way! Such a simple yet elegant way (:

  39. I wish I'd seen this earlier! I just made 6 dozen cupcakes for my 14 year old's JROTC bake sale and this would have been such an easy way to package!

  45. Cleaners Palmers Green Many cleaning companies, including end of tenancy cleaning Whitechapel professionals, offer insurance in case of caused damage during work. Ask your cleaning company whether they offer such insurance or not. If the cleaning service came as a recommendation, it still would be good to ask the provider for insurance.

  46. This is the easiest way to carry individual samples and gifts around. I do this and cover the cups with plastic wrap if they are elaborately decorated and tie a ribbon around the rim of the cup. :)

  47. That sounds like a pretty good idea. Thanks

  50. Awesome content, such a wonderful icing. I really like everything from the icing to the wrap, excellent tips! Thanks so much for discussing and I am a new fan! That's such a wonderful way to create flowers have just a minor shade to it! That way, when individuals start the product packaging, they won't have to get icing trapped on their fingers when they consider to get the cupcake out. Packaging Market Reports

  51. This is such a simple and effective idea! I did something similar with my Christmas Hampers this year with some gold star shaped bowls I found in Tesco for home-made fudge and sweets, but never even though about individual cups for cupcakes! I'm definitely going to use this for a wedding later in the year! New follower and new fan! x

  56. I tried this technique his weekend and got good (not great) results because I am still new to piping! They got a lot of compliments but my swirls just were not as tight as yours!!! Anytime on how to get he icing in the bag without messing up the food coloring which in turn messes up the icing? I put the coloring on th crevace made by the disposable bag's seam but still made a mess and had to start over a lot !
