Rose Water Cupcakes

So the Act II of my artsy fartsy theater cupcakes are rose water cupcakes. To recap ... music director wants cupcakes for the first read-through of a play set in a parfumerie in Budapest. I've decided to call the lavender cupcakes Act I and the rose water cupcakes Act II.

I started off by buying a bottle of rose water.

I then made just a normal vanilla cake ... but instead of adding vanilla, I added the rose water.

I think I must have spilled a little of the rose water because my kitchen smelled like rose perfume for a really long time.

I decided to just make a regular vanilla buttercream for the icing. I didn't want the rose water to be overpowering, and I thought the vanilla buttercream would sweeten up the cupcake a bit.

It only seemed appropriate that I give these little cupcakes a rose swirl and some glitter for a little flash.

I thought they looked like real flowers all boxed up and ready to go.

My first adventure with baking with actual flower products. I really hope the actors and actresses, as well as the director like these. They have a truly unique flavor.
