Chocolate Rose Cupcakes
These Rose Cup cakes are pretty and easy to do with little practice.
Practice piping roses on a white plate using 1M Wilton tip or regular rose tip.
Start piping the swirl from the center of the cake without lifting, in one go.
For a quick delicious chocolate fix you can use a box chocolate cake mix.
