Rosebud Cupcakes for an 18th Birthday

I’ve had one of those days today. Got up really early to make a start on the rosebud cupcakes for an 18th birthday party today, which all went smoothly, until I was just finishing mixing the frosting, when my Dualit hand mixer packed in! That’s two which have broken since Christmas, so I made my husband take it back to John Lewis for me, as I had stacks of baking to do for the show tomorrow. Anyway, I’m fed up with Dualit, so I’m now trying a Kenwood hand mixer. A big mixer is good for some jobs, but when you just want to make a small batch of something or other, I find a hand-mixer quicker and definitely cannot live without one. Here are the rosebud cupcakes, which the client seemed delighted with!

After completing this order and delivering it, I set about starting on the brownies and cookie bars I had planned for the show tomorrow – 4 batches of Rocky Road, 3 of Fudgy Brownies, Blueberry Bars, Raspberry and Almond Blondies and finally Lemon Polenta Cookies! I think putting my feet up with a glass of wine is now in order…
