A Valentine Rose Cupcake ~ Tea Party Tuesday

Welcome to Tea Party Tuesday!!

This week is EXTRA special - I am celebrating 
Sandi's 2nd Anniversary for Tea Time Tuesday
at her lovely blog,  Rose Chintz Cottage

Sandi is a sweet, delightful lady who loves Tea, Roses and PINK!!

Roses are GREAT all year long, but are extra special  
during Valentine's Day.

This week, I am sharing a Rose Cupcake for Tea!

This design was inspired by the fantastic Amanda at I am Baker
For instructions on how to make these roses click to her site HERE.

I chose to use melted chocolate instead of Royal Icing.
I think that made them a tad more sturdy.

I just fell in love with this design. 
So elegant with a touch of whimsy. 

Just PERFECT for Valentine's Day don't you think??

Both the chocolate cupcake and buttercream recipe can be found on my recipes page by clicking HERE.

This pairs nicely with the tea I am having this week in honor of 
Sandi, which is Tazo Rest~ A Rosehip Tea!!

Isn't this cup lovely!! The same roses adorn the saucer
underneath the cup. It is so elegant and one of my favorites!

I thank everyone who participates in Tea Time Tuesday by linking up. I visit every single one of you and try to comment 
as often as I can. Thank you for your support!

I hope you can try to visit some new links/blogs 
each week and spread the LOVE!!

Very sweet and special. And melting chocolate is TONS easier to work with in this application. I could see a bunch of these all gathered together on a cupcake stand as a centerpiece.
