"My mission-to make God loved-will begin after my death.
I will spend my heaven doing good on earth.
I will send a shower of roses."
Buttercream Frosting (recipe below)
Wilton 1M tip & Pastry Bag
Wilton Color Mist Food Spray (optional)
Adapted from WiltonIngredients:
- 1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (they suggest clear, but I only had regular)
- 4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar (approximately 1 lb.)
- 2 tablespoons milk
Make frosting. In a large bowl, cream the shortening and butter with an electric mixer. Add vanilla. Gradually add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time, beating well on medium speed. Continue beating at medium speed and add the milk a little at a time, until the frosting reaches desired consistency for piping.
Using a Wilton 1M tip and pastry bag, make a rosette on the top of each cupcake by swirling a circle from the center outward. You can watch a video tutorial here.
Spray each cupcake, if desired, with the color mist food spray.Pin It

St. Therese, the little flower,
please pick me a rose from the heavenly garden
and send it to me with a message of love;
ask God to grant me the favor I thee implore
and tell Him I will love Him each day more and more.
St. Therese, the Little Flower,
Pray for us!
