My friend Emma's birthday was the perfect excuse to make these pink rose cupcakes.
I had very good intentions when I initially promised the girls at work that I would make them...but those good intentions were very difficult to follow through on when I discovered that her birthday would be the day after our office Christmas party! After a very festive day drinking wine and being merry, the very last thing on my mind was Em's birthday cupcakes...
In the end, the recipe was great - but baking and icing cupcakes the morning after a big night is definitely not something that I will do again in a hurry...especially when it has to be done before work at 8:30 in the morning!
Note to self - a 5am wake up call is far to much to ask when you are hungover!
