Day Three - Cupcakes

Today, I felt like doing something simple. With a twist. So, I made cupcakes. Fluffy, white, vanilla cupcakes. Then, I used a new recipe for the frosting. It was one of the most disgusting things I've ever made. It asked me to make this paste stuff which wouldn't unstick itself from the pan. But, it turned out really well. Then, because trying a new recipe wasn't enough, I attempted to make roses out of frosting. You can judge for yourself whether I succeeded or not.

Because I'm an amateur, I don't actually own a piping bag and tips, so I had to be creative. I took my regular plastic bags and cut a hole in the corner like normal. Then, I cut apart a soda can (which I cleaned beforehand, for the record) and made it into a teardrop shape. From there, I followed the instructional video I found. It was actually pretty easy. I did mess up a few times, but I just scraped off the frosting and started over again!

So, what do you think of my first attempts at a rose? Comment!


P.S. If you have any family recipes that you would care to care, I would be much obliged!


  1. I think you did brilliantly w/o tips, but would you like to borrow my set?

  2. Oh my goodness yes!! I'm presuming this is Diane, as in Linden's mom?
