My sister and sister-in-law helped me make these really cute rose cupcakes for my daughter's birthday last november. We got the idea from a book called "What's New, Cupcake?" which is a sequel to "Hello, Cupcake!" which are both full of cute cupcake ideas. The roses were made out of candy fruit wedges rolled with a rolling pin and lots of sugar to keep them from getting too sticky. You then cut strips from the flattened candy and wrap them around to form a rose. We used flattened green wedges for the leaves.
