As the winner(s) of our first cupcake contest was announced,I thought you might like to see what it takes to make a Blue Rose Girl cupcake. These prizes are no run-of-the-mill treat. We make Blue Rose Girl Cupcakes as we do everything: planned, carefully crafted and cared for, guaranteeing a sweetness that cannot come from a box.
The first step is to make the blue chocolate roses. This took much thinking to come up with, as I knew icing roses would not survive. And I still can't master that frosting tip.
Then, mixing batter for the requested gingerbread with candied ginger cupcakes. The mixing is done by hand to infuse the blue rose girl tender loving care. (No, really it's done by hand because I don't own a mixer. I'm hoping Santa will bring me one of those fancy standing ones for Christmas. Maybe in pink. Or red. Or blue. Okay, I'm digressing...)
The batter is baked and they are cupcakes! Yum! By the way, the hat is stolen from my sister and I'm very attached to it. Also, it substitutes as a hairnet.
Those cupcakes are naked! Get some candied ginger frosting and a chocolate blue rose on them, please. That's indecent.
Now that's what I like to see.
Hope they'll be safe in there. Off they go express to NYC and California. Will they make it? Stay tuned...
