Sweet Roses for Sweet Mums

Mother's Day is yet again upon us, and what better way to celebrate than with cake! We had the family over to our house so I made simple cupcakes but decorated them with lovely little rose-buds and leaves. A few years ago I made Rose pops for our Mothers and two years ago our Mother's Day celebration warranted a big cake, (apparently last year was low-key post-wedding, as I didn't make a Mother's Day dessert!!) but this year I was sharing the dessert responsibility with my Mother-in-Law, so cupcakes seemed more appropriate for the meal.

I had wanted them to be a surprise for our Mothers, but my Mum ended up watching me make them. Looking back on it now, it seems appropriate because of all the times I watched her baking and decorating cakes, and generally "helping" her in the kitchen.


Happy Mother's Day!

You can see how much "help" we were actually providing... sorry Mum!
