Finally it's the long Jubilee weekend! Time for just one more Jubilee bake :) I've been baking up a storm in my kitchen for a charity bake sale happening this weekend. As it is the Jubilee weekend, I thought I'd make some Jubilee cupcakes. I decided to make rose cupcakes with my rose essence instead of plain vanilla. Renshaw had kindly sent me a sample pack of their special Jubilee edition which contains 1 red, 1 white and 2 royal blue icing colours. So I looked on their website and decided to re-create the Union Jack Cupcake. I rarely do cake decorating with icing so this was a real challenge for me. It took me hours just to make 10 of these at which point I'd had enough! I made a rose buttercream frosting to pipe on the remaining cakes and decorated with pretty sprinkles.
Renshaw icing pack, pink cupcake cases and rose essence. I love the colours of the icing and their mybakes website is great for ideas and instructions.
Disclaimer: I was provided a pack of Renshaw icing free of charge to try. I was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are my own.
I used a basic vanilla cupcake recipe but added 2 teaspoons of rose essence to the batter instead of vanilla extract. I made a vanilla buttercream frosting and added 1 teaspoon of rose essence.
