Probably the sweetest cupcakes in the world

Dinner with the girls tomorrow night calls for a lady-like cupcake and a flicking through the Love Bakery recipe book, the fragrant Rosewater cupcakes seemed to be the one to go for.  They are light and girly, as well as super, super sweet.  The recipe called for a cream cheese and rosewater frosting which you would think wouldn't be as sweet as a regular buttercream icing, but you would be wrong.  It's somehow sweeter.

They are delicious, but definitely call for a cake fork, and how happy am I that mine can be put to good use.


  1. what an elegant looking cupcake, I bet it even tastes elegant with the rose water! Yumyum! All the best, Natasha from the Rambles and Shambles blog

  2. You forgot to add 'and the most beautiful plate'! These really do look gorgeous.

  3. thanks natatasha and the kitchenmaid. the plate used to be my grandmas and I remember always wanting to have it at tea time when I was a little girl x

  4. I finally found the letter explaining the pastry forks that I have. They belonged to your Great (?) Aunt Theresa. Reported to be a very lovely lady. I am honored to have them!
