Raspberry Rosewater Cupcakes

January 25, 2012
Raspberry-Rosewater-Cupcakes-1
And the Valentines Day dessert presentation has begun! 
Valentines Day is in a little less than 3 weeks away and I’ve got some great desserts lined up for you.  I’m super excited about these desserts because they are un-traditional.  The flavors are reminiscent of Valentines Day, but are presented in a way that is a little less expected.
The first dessert I have to show you are these Raspberry Rosewater Cupcakes.  They are my favorite fluffy white cake, flavored with Rosewater, and then topped with a Raspberry Buttercream.  Roses and raspberries pop up a lot around Valentines Day, and what’s better than incorporating these flavors into a cupcake!
Click here to view the recipe and make these cupcakes for your Valentines Day celebration!
Stay tuned these next few weeks because I’ve got more cupcakes {and Red Velvet desserts} to show you :).

    I could just reach in and take a bite!  Your photos are beautiful!  What in the world is rosewater?  I’ve never heard of it!

    These are absolutely beautiful.  I love raspberries too.  I could really go for one.

    The use of the rosewater with the raspberries is very creative!  Also, great texture on the cupcake.  I am saving this gem-thanks Krissy!

    I just bought a huge 16 ounce bottle of rose flower water on Amazon. I may have to use up a teaspoon or two on these babies. That’s a really beautiful buttercream piping job! :)

    yum yum yum….and pretty! :)

  • Reply Ela January 27, 2012 at 6:49 am

    I know that this is about rosewater cupcakes but I don’t have an access to rosewater and I love the looks of your cake, it looks so moist.  May I know what I can substitute with the rosewater? Thanks.

  • Reply Krissy's Creations January 27, 2012 at 11:37 pm

    Unfortunately I don’t know any substitutes that would give across the roses flavor without actually incorporating rosewater.  I would just omit it and replace vanilla instead.  Enjoy!

  • Reply Krissy's Creations January 27, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Thanks Audra!  I used a closed star tip and just held it directly over the cupcake and slightly went back and forth.

  • Reply Krissy's Creations January 27, 2012 at 11:38 pm

    Totally romantic!  Perfect word :)

  • Reply Krissy's Creations January 27, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    You’ve got to give Rosewater a try!  Thanks Charissa :)

  • Reply Krissy's Creations January 27, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    I CAN’T believe!  You’ve got to try it out!

  • Reply Krissy's Creations January 27, 2012 at 11:39 pm

    How perfect!  Thanks Sarah :)

  • Reply Krissy's Creations January 27, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Thanks!  The texture is actually one of my favorite parts of this cupcake – light and fluffy :)

  • Reply Krissy's Creations January 27, 2012 at 11:40 pm

    Yah!!!

  • Reply Krissy's Creations January 27, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Rosewater is a flavoring made from the actual petals of roses.  It’s divine!  You’ve got to give it a try :)

  • Reply Krissy's Creations January 27, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Yes we do!
