Mini Cupcakes with Rose Toppers
As it turns out, a five petal Wilton rose is the perfect topper for a mini cupcake. Here is a tutorial from Wilton about how to make them.
Cream Cheese Buttercream
1 8 ounce block cream cheese at room temperature
2 sticks butter at room temperature
2 pounds powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
Beat together cream cheese and butter. Add in vanilla and beat to combine. Slowly add in powdered sugar and beat to combine. Color as desired. To pipe flowers, it is best to leave the icing on the thicker side. You may need to add a tablespoon or 2 of water to thin it out to piping consistency.
