Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Prepare cake batter according to package directions. Divide batter among 24 muffin cups lined with paper baking cups.

  • Prepare Rose-Vanilla Buttercream.

  • Spoon Rose-Vanilla Buttercream into a piping bag fitted with a large star tip; pipe onto cooled cupcakes. Gently press an edible rose petal into the side of each cupcake.
