Rose cupcakes

150g softened unsalted butter

150g caster sugar

3 medium eggs, at room temperature

150g self-raising flour

1 tbsp rose water

1-2 tbsps milk

1 packet instant royal icing

rose petals or silver balls, to decorate

Heat the oven to 170°C. Take a 12-cup muffin tray and line each cup with a paper muffin case.

Beat the butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon until the mixture becomes light-coloured and airy then stir in the eggs, one at a time.

Mix in the flour and rose water. The batter should be slack without being runny. If too thick, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk.

Fill the muffin cases with the batter. Put the tray in the oven for about 20 minutes, until the muffins are well-cooked with a nice golden colour. Place the muffins (in their cases) onto a wire rack to cool down.

Make the royal icing then spread on top of the cupcakes. Set aside to harden. Decorate with rose petals or silver balls.
