What’s in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet.

What's in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet.

After trying the most delicious Rose flavoured cupcake from the Primrose Bakery in London earlier in the year, Rose has been on my to-bake list ever since. I love the really subtle floral notes to them, and the fact that they are a little bit grown up!

The recipe I used for these it the usual vanilla batter, minus the vanilla but with 1 tbsp of Rose water essence in. They needed to be baked for slightly longer than the vanilla cupcakes, I think because of the extra liquid in the batter.

The Rose flavoured buttercream was made with 110g Lurpack unsalted butter, 500g of icing sugar, 4 tbsp of Rose water essence and 1 tbsp of whole milk.

The Rose flavour calls for vintage inspired decorations, but because the Rose is such a subtle flavour, I didn’t want to overpower it with too much sugar by using sugarpaste. So I used the buttercream to try to create a vintage feel to the cakes , with the 1M nozzle and a small petal nozzle….. which needs a little more practice!
